About this deal

Bloomsbury presents The Lost Art of Running by Shane Benzie with Tim Major, read by Clifford Samuel. He has travelled extensively to work with, live with and study a wide range of athletes in different – sometimes extreme – environments. The 2-minute surge is at roughly 95 percent of full effort and the 1-minute surge is at nearly 100 percent of full effort.

There are also a number of anecdotes from ultra runners that Shane has worked with dotted throughout the book too.Part narrative, part practical, this adventure takes you to the foothills of Ethiopia and the town of runners; to the training grounds of world-record-holding marathon runners in Kenya; racing across the Arctic Circle and the mountains of Europe, through the sweltering sands of the Sahara and the hostility of a winter traverse of the Pennine Way, to witness the incredible natural movement of runners in these environments. Instead it's more of a potted history or a memoir of sorts of how he became interested in running technique/human movement. By doing a weekly fartlek run for a month before you hit the track, you’ll: 1) avoid the tendency to train too hard, too early; 2) learn your effort levels and how to adjust the workout based on how you feel; 3) develop an optimal base of speed training prior to hitting the track.

This would be so much better if it was a 150-pages long practical guide concentrated on one theory than an attempt to do it all. Two-thirds of The Lost Art of Running is a travel log of Benzie's many travels all over the globe, though you get none of the descriptive, immersive writing of real travel writing. I normally give self-improvement literature a wide berth but as an injured stuck-at-home runner, missing the running rub, thought, let’s give this a blast!

This will keep you from driving your body too hard on the track to hit or better your previous workout times. years ago, a seemingly easy meniscus operation on both legs (at the same time) turned into a drama recovery. I can’t wait try out some of the ideas, but in the meantime, find myself giving the advice much thought, adjusting my posture and pondering on relaxation in running.
