  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

Available December 2019 Heart Rate Training
Author: Roy T. Benson Declan Connolly

If you are serious about fitness, health, and performance, then Heart Rate Training, Second Edition, is for you. With a myriad of affordable smartphone apps and wearable devices enabling you to track your body’s response to activity, it’s never been easier to use heart rate monitoring to customize your training—and this guide will show you how!
In Heart Rate Training, Second Edition, authors Roy Benson and Declan Connolly combine decades of coaching experience, scientific research, and practical knowledge to help you understand the best way to make your heart rate monitor work for you. They will show you how to get reliable data from your device, dispel myths surrounding heart rate monitors, and make it easy for you to calculate your ideal target heart rate. Then you’ll learn how to customize your training by varying the intensity, duration, frequency, and mode of your exercise sessions as you work toward improving endurance, stamina, economy, and speed.
Information on heart rate variability (HRV) training further prepares you to individualize your training plan based on your personal goals. As a bonus, sample exercise programs will guide you in manipulating training components to design long-term training plans for walking, running, cycling, swimming, triathlons, rowing, cross-country skiing, and team sports.
When you are ready to take training and performance to the next level, turn to Heart Rate Training, and achieve your personal best.
