4.0 von 5 Sternen this book will disappoint. At no point does it wax poetic about ... 11. Oktober 2014
Von Paul Duffau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Competently written with the assistance of Adam Chase, the guide is well organized from preparation to gear, from training to racing. For those looking for an exciting read into the world of trail ultras, this book will disappoint. At no point does it wax poetic about the trails. Instead, Koerner focused on getting you there, and safely, so you can do the poetic bit yourself. Also, the less romantic bits like eating on the run, handling mud, and where to pee.

One thing that might be misleading to some - this guide is exclusively oriented to trail unltrarunning. Wait, that's not right. It's exclusively oriented to trail racing.

It does not include any ultra road races or 12/24/48 hour events and the unique challenges they pose. If you are intending to try one of those events, you'll need to seek some advice outside the scope of the Field Guide to Ultrarunning.

The book is geared towards ultra-racing more than simply ultrarunning but the principles remain. The cool part about ultrarunning is you really don't need permission or a race entry to go someplace awesome to run. If you've built out the body to handle it and learned how to handle the trails, you have all you need to do an ultra-run, even if you never do an ultra-race.

One pleasant element of the book was Koerner's willingness to use his mistakes as object lessons for the rest of us to learn from. I've maintained that the guy or woman who wins the race isn't always the best runner but the one who makes the least mistakes.

Using the real life examples, Koerner does a nice job of showing the results of bad decision-making and, sometimes, just plain bad luck. He offers good advice on how to handle it. When you get to that part of the book, listen. It may save your ultrarunning career.

If you're a marathoner looking to move up, this is a book that should land on your book shelf and be referred to frequently. If you never conceive of doing anything so foolish as an ultra, it's probably not for you.

If you're on the fence, though, get the book. Hal Koerner will lead you through the process, show you it's achievable, and put the tools in your hand to get there.

Once you have the tools, it's up to you to go out and find the poetry on the trail.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I would have liked him to go deeper 23. Januar 2015
Von B. Carpenter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
3 stars...or 5, depending on what you want from this book.

This book is an insight into Hal Koerner's approach to ultrarunning. In that sense, it is aptly titled. You'll read about Hal's thoughts, practices, challenges, and even his playlists. It is not so much a guide for ultrarunning in general but for *Hal's way* of ultrarunning. That said, let us not forget that Hal Koerner is one of the most successful ultrarunners of his generation. Hal's way works, clearly. And, by all accounts, he is a true sportsman and gentleman. And so I found myself reading as much to learn things about ultrarunning as I did to learn about Hal and what makes him tick as a runner. In that sense, I would have liked him to go deeper, both into his own motivations, challenges, how he creates meaning beyond competition, etc. (though, to be fair, that may be better suited for a autobiography sort of thing), as well as going deeper into the how & why his training plans are what they are, i.e. what science or experience are behind them.

But, while I am an experienced road marathon runner, I am new to ultrarunning. For my needs, I found Byron's book to be of better assistance. But I am a fan of Hal, and I did learn a few things from this book. I enjoyed it.

It is worth a read so long as you know what you are reading. If you want a definitive intro to the sport, this may not be the best option. But if you know/admire/respect Hal Koerner's accomplishments as a runner and want to learn from his method, this is your read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just What I Needed! 22. Juli 2014
Von James T. Spradlin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As a lifelong runner who has gradually upped my mileage over the last few years and will run my first ultramarathon in a month I am excited to have this field guide. The style of writing is engaging, and the content is exactly what I need to help me prepare mentally and physically. The real-world tips are invaluable!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Nice Overview for Beginners, But Lacks Content 17. Juni 2015
Von Matthew Kingore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I know about as much about ultra running as I did before reading this book. No offense to Hal, who is a great coach and has written for Outside and Trail Runner magazines, but this volume feels like merely a collection of those articles. Even the training plans included at the end are a disappointment. They're one-size-fits-all and include little detail. For example, one 18-mile long run in the 50K plan is labeled "tempo." How can 18 miles be a tempo run? Tempo runs are only 20 - 40 minutes (not that this Field Guide tells you so). You can incorporate tempo intervals into a long run, certainly, but doing so calls for a little more guidance. How many? How long? How much rest between intervals? These are the questions one would expect this book to answer rather than merely proposing some vague notion of uptempo running during a long run.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great introduction and guide 7. August 2014
Von Le Manchot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A well-written and entertaining introductory guide by an experienced and successful competitive trail ultra runner. Although comprehensive across relevant subjects, the text is not particularly deep. This is expected in such a "Field Guide" volume but the author does provide a solid platform from which an interested reader will be encouraged to pursue additional knowledge and perspectives. In addition, many specific experiences, both good and bad, are discussed in a way that effectively communicates both the origin of "issues" and solutions or protocols to avoid them. Recommended reading for those considering, just beginning, or in the early stages of racing ultramarathons. Experienced ultramarathoners will also benefit from a reading as many race-proven, experienced-based tips are distributed throughout.
