Comments The Art of Running Faster

  • Amy

    Lots of good advice. *Beginning runners often run at "medium" rather than ever really going hard or easy.*Variation! Tempo, intervals, long rest, short rest, playful, intense*Build strength, suppleness, speed, and two other S's. Good advice for all around fitness.


  • Sharon James

    This book was fantastic! I didn't stop reading it until I finished in the early hours of morning. As a runner of ten years I have only ever focused on running long but after reading this I am excited about taking a year off ultra/marathon goals to concentrate on speed work and implementing advice from this book.


  • Julykatrae

    Lots of good practical tips for beginners to experienced runners - there is something in there for everyone. Lots of focus on running technique including drills, intervals & hills, strength, stretch etc. Must read for every runner.


  • Matthew Cockerill

    Excellent - quick read, from someone who has run at the very top level, and yet with ideas easily applicable by any runner (and other sports too, in fact)


  • Andréas Dieryck

    The Art of Running Faster is an interesting book that goes against conventional wisdom in advising speedwork, recovery session, short session, intensive stretching, double daily training for all kind of runners. Mileage is not the only key to improvement says Goater and he may have a big point in advising complementary, exhaustive sessions for all types of runners. The stories and examples provided by the author make it an entertaining and lively read as well, though most of the references date [...]


  • Daniele

    This was my first book about running and had lots of interesting advises!As often happens, the information could have be expressed in half the pages.The author instead relives his past glory on every other page, I found this too much.


  • Helen

    I found a lot of helpful information in The Art of Running Faster. Like many how-to running books, I had to skim for what interested me and skip what didn’t. I found learning about fartleks and other training strategies extremely helpful. While I wasn’t very interested in reading about specific races and runners, I did enjoy some of the pictures. As a new runner, when talking about a picture in which one runner is finishing strong and his pursuer has “started to labour and over-stride”, [...]


  • Keith

    In a sense, this the the memoirs of Julian Goater, in another sense, it is a compilation of what he has learned about running as an elite runner. He is really big on doing intervals, but not long intervals. Hills are also great training, and not just the uphill, but don't get injured on the downhill portion.Flexibility is important. He recognizes that runners don't like to take a lot of time stretching, so has a nice short set of stretches.It is well written because I was half way through the bo [...]


  • Adrian Royce

    This is a book that is very autobiographical but that should not detract from the great information contained in its pages. Sure a heap of the advice can be found on the interweb or in runners magazines but it is a unique insight into the author's way of confronting issues. One of the best chapters is near the end and that is about dealing with psychological stuff - that is rare to find on the interweb. Not sure if it needed a whole chapter dedicated to running clubs though! In short, I ran fast [...]


  • Angelo Barrameda

    The book would cater to both first time runners and seasoned runners as well. It is nice to be inside the mind of an international runner who has experienced to compete against the best in the world. The emphasis on stride and cadence has drastically improved my speed. Though I may have a lot to do with my training, I am confident that I would be able to improve my speed by following the 5S


  • Cameron

    More of a autobiography then a book about training. I didn't mind this aspect,however if you were more interested in running training in a structured manner then look somewhere else. Most of the advice is sound and current. Key points - high cadence controlled through short back and forth with elbows. Run tall and with a slight lean


  • Mike Wallace

    Meh. One more genetically blessed runner providing anecdotal advice and reliving his glory days. I much prefer Daniels' Running Formula or Road Racing for Serious Runners.


  • Andrea James

    I really liked the parts of book with advice on how to improve running techniques but I was not so keen on the anecdotes. Overall, the book inspired me to be more well-rounded in my training and to include regimes to increase my suppleness, strength and skill instead of just focusing on speed and stamina.


  • Ta0paipai

    A book that offers sound advice to inexperienced runners and challenges long-time runners to think, and train, outside the box. I hope to reap the benefits of adding some new techniques to my training menu!


  • Dianna

    Decided to focus more on the other fitness book I was reading: The New Rules of Lifting for Women: Lift Like a Man, Look Like a Goddess.


  • Nicola Nuttall

    Some good tips but don't think it's going to make me much faster


  • Andy Theyers

    Hugely useful (particularly on stretching and strength) if a little repetitive and over zealous (how many of us are actually going to run twice a day, six days a week?)


  • Jonny Wignall

    If you are interested in running , even if you dont want to become a competitor , this will help you run better and that is a good thing !!


  • Rachel

    Fab book! Loved it so much I bought the paperback so I can refer to it at any time!


  • Josie Wright

    Excellent advice for runners, has made me completely rethink my routine. I like the anecdotal examples, but appreciate it's not for everyone!


  • Charles

    Some useful information and willing to be different if need be. Could tone down the references to his winning the national cross country and the fact that he was pals with Dave Bedford.


  • Michael

    I enjoyed this book a lot and wished that I had read it as a younger runner! Full of great training ideas, personal stories and recollections from the golden age of British distance running.


  • Jellybean6401

    It was ok, but it went into waaaayyyy to much detail. My favourite part was the streches and warmups. I would totally recommend this book for people trying to train for a marathon!


  • Mylesgorton

    Really interesting and very detailed - you can't read this without improving your running in some way!
