Despite the growing popularity of running, literature on training young athletes is insufficient. Little attention is also paid to running for performance as compared to recreational running. Petr Bahenský takes advantage of his long-term experience as an athletics coach, presenting a summary of training methods suitable for runners in child and junior age categories, while covering premature specialization and presenting methods suitable for analyzing the selected training program. Based on the evaluation of the training of his young athletes, he addresses the influence of specific and non-specific training methods, the latency of the effect of training undergone and the influence of the strength of lower extremities on running technique. This useful guide to the young runner’s path to achieving top-level performance in adulthood is now available to readers.
