AUTHOR: Dr. Sharon Svensson
LISTPRICE: $14.95

The Total Runner's Almanac-3 is a comprehensive logbook and training primer. Building on the earlier, highly successful and standard-setting almanacs for runners and triathletes, it is light weight and "pared down to the bones," a flexible year-long training companion.

Spanning 54 weeks, the undated weekly log pages now have twice the room to write, more than any book in its class. It has 22 charts and templates to organize:

  • Training
  • Goal setting
  • Race planning
  • Pace setting
  • Long term record keeping

The Almanac saves time for the experienced runner. For the newer participant, it's a foundation for establishing a proper training program which conforms to current advances in exercise physiology, training and race preparation. For all, it's an indispensable year-round organizer, record keeper and information source.

You will learn from world class runners and coaches how to:

  • Eat for peak performance
  • Prevent burn-out and injury
  • Train and race with a heart rate monitor
  • Improve your strength, speed and endurance
  • Prepare, taper and peak for a race of any distance

Contributors to the third edition include:

  • Ross Gerry, swim technique coach to numerous NCAA and Olympic champions
  • Scott Jurek, seven-time winner of the Western States Endurance Run
  • Dr. Phil Maffetone, nutrition advisor to celebrities and top athletes
  • Seppo Nuuttila, a former coach of the Finnish National Track & Field Team and coach of several Olympic and professional endurance thletes, including rowers, runners and triathletes
  • Irv Ray, the Head Track & Field Coach at the University of California, Riverside
  • Steve Scott, known as "The World's Greatest Miler" and now the Head Track & Field Coach at the California State University in San Marcos

What Others Say:

"It's truly the Rolls Royce of training diaries, a practical bible for the beginner and an easy reference guide for anyone closer to the elite end of the scale. The only objection you might have is that it's an American publication, and most of the advice comes from Americans who you may not have heard of. But that doesn"t affect the quality of the advice. If you can only afford one running book this year, make it this one—it's worth it."
- Runner's World magazine

"Svensson has put together the most comprehensive training log yet on the market."

Can You Make a Living Doing That?

Can You Make a Living Doing That?

ISBN: 0-9634568-8-1
AUTHOR: Kearns, Brad
LISTPRICE: $9.95
PUBDATE: January 1996
DESCRIPTION: This book details the life of triathlete Brad Kearns, from his beginnings in the sport, to life on the pro circuit. Kearns offers a unique inside look on the challenges and rewards of succeeding in triathlons, where many professional competitors struggle to make ends meet, while dedicating their lives to the arduous training regimen and disciplined lifestyle required for success. This self-effacing account of his athletic journey is laced with hilarious tales of mischief and high-risk adventure, in a sport where the unique, close-knit fraternity of athletes are cutthroat in competition, yet "cut-loose" off the race course.

Triathlete of the Decade Mark Allen describes this book very well: "This book is a refreshing departure from the common 'how to' books in sports. Brad goes beyond the race results and workout miles to provide an intimate look at the lifestyle of a professional athlete. I highly recommend this book from one of the most colorful personalities in sports today."
