Second Edition Complete!

(13 Oct 2018)

The book is completed and is being reviewed on Amazon.com now. It is also at the printers here in Australia (Amazon.com will not send books to Australia so we need to print here for worldwide distribution). As soon as Amazon finish their review the print version will be available from there and UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Japan. The Kindle version should be ready in a few days - and the epub version too. We are having some technical difficulties with the PDF which will be downloadable from our website - more as it happens.

Second Edition update

(10 Oct 2018)

Final read through completed. A few small word changes and it is ready. It goes to the editor first thing tomorrow - it looks great and reads very well. We believe it to be the most comprehensive running book ever

Author - Keith Bateman

Keith Bateman

Competitor and coach

From the age of 45 Keith's running times improved dramatically, culminating in a host of State, National and World age-group records. The records that he set in the 55-age-group were faster than the records he set in the 45-age-group! At the time of writing, he has broken, and still holds, 38 age-group State Records, 15 Australian age-group records and five 55-age-group World Records: 1500m (4:12.35), 1 mile (4:35.04), 3000m (8:56.80), 5000m (15:29.7) and 10000m (31:51.86).

Keith currently conducts private coaching sessions (keithbatemancoaching.com) and coaches Cross-country and track running at a Sydney public school. His technique-change lessons combine with Heidi's Strengthening and Rehabilitation programs to form the core of this book. Keith also provides a chapter for coaches who want to introduce technique change for their runners.
