    One thought on “Daniels' Running Formula”

    1. Running is my weak spot. I can't even say why, but I count picking up running a few years ago to the best decisions I have ever made and now can't even imagine a life without it. Having that said, I'm not an athlete. I run and that's all I do. I don't train. But then I realized I actually did want to increase my knowledge on that subject and get more into the scientific bits. And that was when I was recommended this book!Jack Daniels (not related to the whisky, but I wonder how often he gets jok [...]

    2. As a recreational runner I found this book very helpful but also pretty advanced. It is definitely a resource that I will continue to utilize as I continue to improve in my running.

    3. Jack Daniels is a professor of physical education, coach of Olympic athletes and olympic medalist himself. That was proof enough for me, to take a closer look on his ideas.For me there were two important things in this book. First one was the idea of training load. I've understood that there is different load for different type of exercises, but this book got me to understand more about it and quantify the loads to some extend. I took that part directly in to use on my training diary and will us [...]

    4. This book is simply amazing. I read it, followed one of the 26-week marathon training plans and dropped my marathon time by over 50 minutes in less than a year. From 3:55 to 3:03 after doing the 41-55 miles (66-89 km) per week plan. The book does a good job telling you why you do every run as you do. It tells you what paces to hit for each run also. The plans are easy to follow and they are easy to customize to fit your life. The only critism I have is that the long runs are too easy/slow. While [...]

    5. Daniels is a genius. At times almost a little too smart. I do not recommend this book to anyone who's never run at least a 50 mile week at one point or another. Most of his techniques don't apply to people not hoping to qualify for the Olympics. His methods are cutting edge (especially 30 years ago) and this book is a must read for anyone who spends a great deal of their life in their running shoes.

    6. Some good tips but I had higher hopes. I appreciate the scientific approach, but sometimes felt the discussion was in place just to talk about the science, rather than enhance the author's premise. A nice structural change would be a bullet point "need to know" at the end of each chapter to reinforce the important points or lessons in that chapter.

    7. The way the book is written is very easy to follow and use. I think it's a great helper for anyone who is serious about his training. Now it's time to apply the VDOT values in the road and see if the training programs of the book do make a difference in marathon!

    8. Done them allHansons, Pfitzinger, etc. The Daniels 2Q marathon plan is the right fit for me (your mileage may vary).The 2Q method is wonderful and roughly follows the 80% easy 20% hard rule of thumb (which in my opinion is a far more sustainable way to train). I love how each Q is unique (some have a long warmup, others short, some marathon pace Qs have a break roughly halfway, others don't, tempo Qs sometimes have rests, other times, recovery intervals). With Hansons and Pfitzinger you were bas [...]

    9. This book changed my entire view on what running training should look like - and it flies in the face of my preconceptions that I've held ever since I started running. The first and most important thing I learned is that I've been running entirely too fast for the majority of my runs - when in fact, you obtain the greatest benefit for the lowest risk when you run pretty slowly (easy pace) for the majority of your runs. The second is that I should be running much more than twice a week - ideally [...]

    10. Daniels' Running Formula - одна из самых известных и самых лучших книг о беге от известного тренера Джека Дениэльса, часто упоминаемого спортсменами как ДД :). Я считаю что это must read для любого кто увлекается бегом - от новичка, до соревнующегося спортсмена. Одна из важнейших концепций о [...]

    11. Actually more like 3.5 starsGood recommendations and general framework for running, but it seems to be more suitable for professional and/or people who are really into long distances on their weekly training than people like me who really like running but can't put in all that much mileage. I used it for marathon training and his lightest program was up to 40 miles per week while my aspiration was more like up to 20 or 30 miles per week

    12. Now that I have the proper knowledge from the coach, I am better prepared for a better training plan ahead. Before reading this book, I was thinking about tackling Marathon at the end of this year. After reading this book, I thought I'd be better off to target at half Marathon before the end of the year with carefully executed plan. Thank you coach!

    13. My marathon planning goes on. This authoritative book helped although it was clearly written for those fitter and younger than me. Contains enough general tips to help casual runners who are motivated by personal achievement rather than winning medals.

    14. Good for the intermediate to advance runnerPlenty of science and training plans for more experienced runners. New runners should slowly build up to at least 30 miles per week before tackling Mr Daniels' formulas. S great resource.

    15. It helps me to understand the training program. I must admit, the number and charts are not my fave but they are necessary. This is reference book, that means I like to quick read the whole book and go deeper to section related to my objective at that time.

    16. I'm just a recreational half marathon runner. The training plans and concepts in this book seem more helpful to semi-pro or pro runners.I'll stick with simpler run training books.

    17. jack daniels is popularly considered the best running coach alive, and his methodical, data-driven approach to training has greatly influenced coaching methodology today. time to read the source material!(ALSO: refreshing to see a bad-ass chick on the cover of this running book. though women are estimated to comprise more than 50 percent of runners today, it's a total sausage-fest on running-book covers.)

    18. This was the second time (at least) I've read this one, but the first time I've taken the time to try to understand the nuanced details.Overall, I liked the book and it made a lot of sense. However Early in the book, Daniels says that Q1 and Q2 workouts should be performed weekly, while a Q3 workout should be added every other week.Yet, in the back of the book, the marathon and half marathon schedule does not adhere to this principle. I read it and re-read it, but I could not find an explanation [...]

    19. Every now and again I get back in the running habit. And what with it being so long since I've done any formal training and my bust ass not being able to afford an actual coach, I usually call on my Brooklyn Road Runners Club buddies to recommend a decent training book.Turns out Jack Daniels, the author of the book they recommended, lives less than an hour from where I spent my summer in 2006, in upstate New York. Not that it did me any good, as he's almost 80 years old and not taking in new ath [...]

    20. Ended up with some mixed feelings about this book. Basically, I liked it because it has a very scientifically-tested answer to the question: how should we train? No doubt he has studied A LOT the topic, no doubt he knows a LOT about it. He talks about everything that goes from how you should breath to the types of runs there are. He also explains how to train considering you VO2Max, what he thinks about altitude training, how to run a marathon if you've never runned before and million of other t [...]

    21. Liked it, seems like a good reference, but I read a library copy and have no plans to buy it. Frankly, it seemed like more of a manual for coaches, rather than for runners (maybe it started out as that in the first edition, and still has that outlook). The chapters on racing specific distances, and cross-country, especially, made me think: this was written for coaches.Specific things I would have appreciated were (1) way more detail on improving running economy, (2) more detail on training adapt [...]

    22. This is one of the best running books that I've come across. I've had a difficult time discarding the old notions like "add 10% a week" or "40 miles a week or more for marathon training" but Jack Daniels (I love that name) makes a very solid scientific argument for time and intensity versus racking up miles that's also backed with decades of both personal running and coaching experience.The VDOT tables and a handful of the other figures(like the treadmill conversion charts) are alone worth buyin [...]

    23. This book is one of the better running/training reads out there. It shows different types of training speeds and how they are beneficial. They are E for easy, T for Tempo, I for Interval, and R for Repetition. It goes on to tell you exactly how fast and how long to train based on your current fitness level. The Fitness level he uses is called the 'VDOT'. This can be found based off of current personal bests in races. The information helps you to get to get the most for your training, and you can [...]

    24. This is a great book for anyone who trains for any sort of distance running, whether that be the 1500 all the way up to the marathon. Daniels brings his scientific mind to training and as a result he provides you with a very detailed training program that even tells you what pace you should do for each run. He even has a training table that estimates what your time would be for a marathon based on a recent 10k or half marathon race you've recently run. The McMillan website has a similar calculat [...]

    25. I can definitely see the influence Daniels had on McMillan but I'm not sure it's worth spending the time with Daniels' materials now. He emphasizes VO2Max when nowadays the more accepted organizing principle is functional threshold, and to really dig into even VO2Max you'll need his Oxygen Power pamphlet ($35 on his website only.) He also attributes certain physiological changes to long slow distance that Coggan's work suggests is better found through threshold training. There are some interesti [...]

    26. This is the best book on running I've read so far. The author has many years of coaching and training experience. He has worked with a wide spectrum of athletes from high schoolers to Olympians. As a runner himself, he also speaks to the mindset of those who love to run, addressing such ideas as layoffs, the benefits of cross training and the strategy aspect of racing. What I liked most about this book, is the author's insistence that rest days are just as important as training days. It's a conc [...]

    27. This book ranges from simple guidelines to complex training plans. Actually it is more like a how-to on how to make a personalized training plan, rather than specific plans, though full examples are given. Personally, I have trouble sticking to even very simple plans, let alone something 18+ weeks of things like '2 E + 8 M + 4 T + 2 E' (8 miles at marathon pace followed by 2 at tempo, with a 2 mile warm-up and 2 mile cool-down). But there is a lot of great advice in the book, even if online plan [...]
