RE: Thanks Tinman
Obviously I'm not Renato but i can answer some of your questions because I have the book.

Firstly, just buy the thing. Its cheap and is bursting with imformation. Its short (which is a good thing, IMO). It contains scientific explanations and pratical reasons/solutions. Its very readable. Its an excellent reference book. It has loads of specific examples of training for his (others) athletes.

Your Q, My A:
Does it include sample workouts or programs from general to specific training? Yes & Yes

Does it go over how you change from more general work in your beginning years to more specific work in later years? Not really. It does discuss a seasons breakdown into different trainnig periods but not a lot on how an athletes training should evolve from yr to yr.

Does it go over more than just marathon training...and i am sure there are other questions? It is geared towards marathon training BUT there is certainly worthwhile information for 3k-10k runners.

Renato,

You say your book is available on the IAAF site. I am interested in purchasing it, but i am curious about some of the particulars of the book. Does it include sample workouts or programs from general to specific training? Does it go over how you change from more general work in your beginning years to more specific work in later years? Does it go over more than just marathon training...and i am sure there are other questions? But if you could answer these i would be very interested in trying to get away from do this always or this always. Thanks.
