Description

Many middle aged runners face a common problem: the personal challenge and inner rewards that were once powerful motives driving their running program have faded with time. What started as an invigorating ritual that refreshed the body and spirit has become too familiar and oftentimes monotonous.

Running Past 50 was written to remedy this problem and restore the fun and meaning to running. Author Rich Benyo-who is editor of Marathon & Beyond , a former executive editor of Runner's World , and a devoted runner himself-shows runners how to reinvent their running so that the years after 50 can be the best in their careers.

Through an engaging writing style and humorous anecdotes, Benyo helps runners:

- evaluate their physical condition and mental motivation, - set new goals, - train more effectively, - understand good nutrition and hydration, - avoid injuries, and - stay motivated.

Benyo shows seasoned runners how to make adjustments to their running program so that training becomes more effective and satisfying. He discusses physical adjustments that runners can make, including increasing upper- and lower-body strength, using speed training and pacing in workouts, getting proper rest, and working walking into workouts. He also covers the all-important mental aspects of running, inspiring and encouraging runners to push past psychological barriers that hold them back.
