Praise For…

“Whether you are new to running or trying to improve, Easy Running Plans will help. Gaudette has distilled decades of coaching experience into a simple, sensible, easy-to-follow, and holistic plan.”—Daniel Lieberman, professor and chair of the Department of Human Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University

“Jeff Gaudette excels at distilling essential training principles and explaining scientific research in clear and practical terms. Easy Running Plans cuts through all the confusion about running form, stretches, and strength work, providing simple instructions on how to perform key exercises and drills and then integrating them into easy-to-follow training plans.”—Jonathan Beverly, editor-in-chief of PodiumRunner

“As a long time athlete and coach, I've seen many runners (myself included) have injury interrupt their training—and sometimes even cost them their joy of running. In Easy Running Plans, Jeff has created a step-by-step guide for beginning runners to find long term success. He lays out a path we both wish we had taken in our running careers: paying attention to the foundational elements of running—form, posture, and strength—from the beginning. Easy Running Plans is a complete guide to doing exactly that and will provide a lot of value for new runners and veterans alike.”—Ryan Warrenburg, running coach at ZAP Endurance
