Nike Running Camp Director Roy Benson Release Book!

March 12, 2012

Roy Benson, director of the Smoky Mountain Running Camp and co-director of our Green Mountain Running Camp has recently released his latest book.

Coach Roy Benson's new book, "Heart Rate Training," co-authored with his friend Decaln Connoly, PhD, was published by Human Kinetics and has already sold well over 5,000 copies.

Coach Benson has studied cardiac response to runners' workouts since graduate school at the University of Florida in 1970.  Now, he and Dr. Connolly have written the first book to completely update HR monitored training in over 10 years. The book features information on both the science and the art of using HR monitors and includes training programs on every single sport which can benefit from HR monitoring.

"You will learn about the science behind the training that a HRM can validate," reports Coach Benson.  " Whether you measure the effort with your stop watch and free index finger or by an expensive monitor, Effort Is The Answer.  Measure the hard and the easy any way you want.  But trust me and Doc Connolly to not fool you about the importance of knowing the fine shades of difference."
