    A running bible. I’m lucky enough to be coached by Neely but this book took everything one step deeper - step by step tools on how to build your training block and how to set up your goals. So many personal stories from Neely that illustrate what an incredible athlete she is but also how much she has learned over the years and how passionate she is about coaching. The way it’s written makes it easy to see yourself in Neely, even though I’m not an elite runner I could identify the same type A ten A running bible. I’m lucky enough to be coached by Neely but this book took everything one step deeper - step by step tools on how to build your training block and how to set up your goals. So many personal stories from Neely that illustrate what an incredible athlete she is but also how much she has learned over the years and how passionate she is about coaching. The way it’s written makes it easy to see yourself in Neely, even though I’m not an elite runner I could identify the same type A tendencies and that’s what made Neely’s sound, practical and longevity focused tips and philosophy so helpful. The book doesn’t just have a training plan but it has a description of all pieces that go into a training plan. Also, focused on the female athletes experience which is SO helpful. Helps you really understand the science behind running without getting too into the dry and boring weeds. Neely discusses all the components of her training philosophy that I’ve begun to be familiar with having been coached by her for a year but reading them very more detail and alongside her personal experience made me realize so many additional things and for me, knowing the why behind the method is so valuable. The format of this book is enjoyable, easy to read, and easy to find and go back to valuable sections. The mindfulness journaling prompts and goal setting prompts and things I’m really excited to dig into.

    I’m so grateful there are finally good books being published about women’s running and that they are worth reading. I wish I had had this book as a high school and college runner and while I was pregnant.

    Is there anything particularly new or groundbreaking in this book? No, not if you're an experienced runner. Is it worth picking up anyways? Yes! It's a comprehensive look at how to achieve your own fitness breakthroughs for a variety of goals and life stages. I particularly appreciated the emphasis on women's running, seen most strongly in an entire chapter devoted to pregnant and postpartum fitness (super relevant to my life right now). I learned some new tricks and approaches in this book, and Is there anything particularly new or groundbreaking in this book? No, not if you're an experienced runner. Is it worth picking up anyways?

I learned some new tricks and approaches in this book, and was reminded of many other bedrocks of good training: consistency, recovery, and the "extras" like fuel and mobility work. I'm sure I will return to it frequently when my postpartum goals are in motion.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! It is filled with clear but non-judgmental advice and thoughts on running, real stories, and science-backed information. I liked the practical options provided at the end of each chapter and how each chapter focused on one aspect, such as food, recovery, breathing, or even periods and pregnancy. The tone was positive and encouraging and continually motivated me. It’s great for people just starting out or people who have been running for years.

    So well written and full of engaging profiles of athletes who have had to overcome plenty of obstacles in their running career. Great information on how to train for different races (5K to an Ultra). I never thought a running book could be a "fun read", I am happy to say I was wrong!
