And here's what they are saying about "RunSmart: A Comprehensive Approach To Injury-Free Running":
"RunSmart review from an age-group multisport athlete: Allan's philosophy and approach have kept me injury-free for the past four years. As a long-distance age-group triathlete with a full-time job, staying healthy and uninjured has been one of my keys to seeing continuous improvement. What I love most about the RunSmart approach is that it allows the individual athlete to take control of his or her training by giving them the "why?" behind loading strategies (cognitive/mechanical/nutritional), recovery, scheduling, and pacing. This is a must-have reference for the aspiring multisport athlete!"- Paul Terranova - 3:00 marathoner and sub-10:00 Ironman Hawaii age group competitor - review posted on lulu.com.
"Allan's fresh perspective on recovery-centered running and training is a welcome shift away from 100-mile weeks, 'more is better', and cookie-cutter approaches. All levels of athletes from working parents, college athletes, weekend warriors, and dedicated amateur runners can apply his principles for a better and more consistent level of running performance."- Josh Kennedy - Western States 100 finisher
"'RunSmart' is a complete manual for the endurance athlete. The scientific method and common sense are blended to educate the runner to make informed choices in managing his or her endurance sport. As a Diplomat in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, I am especially encouraged in the application of MDT in treating injuries encountered by runners."- Curt Rickert - McKenzie Diplomat
"A fantastic book to read and to keep for reference for training, nutrition, hydration, injury prevention, anatomy, biology, chemistry, etc. Allan knows so much and is able to speak the language so that it's comprehensible to all. I do not go a week without it!"- Robin Warnken - massage therapist, fitness professional, and Ironman finisher - review posted on facebook.com
"I want to tell you how much I enjoyed and was helped by your [RunSmart] class. My stride feels much more natural, and some of the nagging little injuries are starting to fade away - like aching knee joints, etc. I also think that it is really going to help me increase my distance by improving the efficiency of my mechanics - - your instruction really turned on the light bulb and helped me tremendously. You are a good coach. And I really got a lot out of the last session on training schedule, recovery times, etc. That was some great information."- LA Williams
