Nice, Hiro. I critiqued the opening of the book early in the thread. RY's data he posted in mapmyrun and linked in Facebook contradict info in his book about the initial 3 marathons in 3 significant ways: (1) mapmyrun order was 3:19, 3:28, 4:07 so he got slower not faster; (2) book says route was loops in Richmond Park, but mapmyrun shows point to point from Twickenham to Regents Park, which then rules out Eva as a witness to his initial marathon as the book claims; and (3) mapmyrun says it was Day 2 when he ran 2 marathons in a day, not Day 1 as the book claims. I point this out simply to say RY contradicts himself, quite obviously. I think the book exaggerated the claims that were already an exaggeration in the mapmyrun data.
My interest was in regard to some of the training information he presented. Specifically the last two images posted here: http://imgur.com/a/9JWxv.
Why? Because the same material shows up here: http://www.brightonhalfmarathon.com/news/nick-anderson/ . Without context we cant know for sure if he attributes it or not. That is why we really need to get a copy of the book.
Nick Anderson coached me for a little while. He is the real deal and a good coach. I am sure he would be interested to know that this clown is ripping off his advice without attributing quotes.
I am not in contact with Nick anymore but he is on Twitter if someone wants to give him a heads up.
