Low-Mileage Running is a short guide to running faster, injury free. It focuses on avoiding injury while optimizing your training.
Low-Mileage Running provides practical training advice, workouts, and sample training plans for the 5k to Marathon.
From the book:
“This isn’t a magic formula; it’s just one runner sharing his experience with others. I can’t guarantee success; I can only tell you what I’ve done and how it might work for you as well. If you value your time and are willing to try an unconventional approach, you have picked the right book.”

Praise for Low-Mileage Running
Brian MacKenzie Says: “In a world that is constantly evolving and looking to more efficient ways to either run a business, or live your life, Olson is offering up what many of us are finding to be truer and truer as time has her way with us. Quality work cannot be outdone by doing more low-quality work. At the end of the day if you’re not in the long game nothing you’re doing is advancing us in our pursuit of excellence. Aaron Olson is playing the long game.”
