Outdated thinking?

Author focuses on what seem to me to be outdated ideas of carb-loading, intensity runs, and high-tech footware. I personally find "primal endurance" thinking much more compelling.

Short, not a lot of substance

Maybe it's because I am constantly looking for info regarding running--but I've heard all of this before. They basically explain a training program, which I have been doing for half marathons. It could be called "you're first race."

Not terrible, but it was not anything new for me.
