These are some of the books I've used in my training and literature review.

  1. Daniels' Running Formula, Jack Daniels, Ph.D. If you only buy one book to read, this is the book. Read it often. You'll be amazed what you learn after you've referred to it a dozen times!
  2. Running with Lydiard, Arthur Lydiard & Garth Gilmore. This book is key to the hill training phase and describes the training techniques in layman's terms.
  3. Programmed to Run, Thomas S. Miller, Ph.D. Excellent source for running technique
  4. Lore of Running, Timothy Noaks, MD. The reference book for all things running
  5. Advanced Marathoning, Pete Pfitzinger, Scott Douglas. Nice multi-week, multi-marathon, training schedules
  6. The Cutting Edge Runner, Matt Fitzgerald. Scientific principles of training made easy to understand.

Here is an alphabetical bibliography. The list is incomplete and I do not have all of the bibliographic information on every article. If you see an article, and know the source, please contact me and I will update the list.
