  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

Hal Higdon's Half Marathon Training
By Hal Higdon

Product Description
Hal Higdon’s name is synonymous with running. As contributing editor of Runner’s World and best-selling author, he has helped countless runners achieve their distance goals. Now, he’s created the definitive guide on today’s most popular distance, the 13.1-mile half marathon.
Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Training is everything you wanted to know about running the half marathon, including where to begin, what to focus on, how to pace yourself, how to avoid injury, how to track your progress, how to stay the course, and how to improve. Whether this is your first or fiftieth half marathon, there is a plan for you.
Inside you’ll find more than 15 customizable programs, ranging from novice to advanced (you’ll even find a walking-only plan), as well as proven strategies, race-day tips, and motivation from half-marathoners around the globe. From day 1 to mile 13.1, Hal will guide, encourage, and pace you to your goal.
Other guides might help you complete the half, but only one will introduce you to the joys of running. Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon Training is a book you’ll return to for guidance and inspiration for a lifetime of running.
