The New Red Edition of the Believe Training Journal by professional runners Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas is much more than a running workout log; it's a secret weapon. Lauren and Ro created their first Believe I Am training diary when they couldn't find a workout log that inspired them to keep using it. Now in the fourth evolution, this update of the Believe Training Journal will help runners set goals, see what works and what doesn't, keep their heads in the game, stay honest when no one's looking, and prove when the work's been done. With a smart, functional design, the Believe Training Journal guides runners through their season, helping set goals, plan training weeks, record daily workouts, and keep runners focused. The Journal includes: an undated annual calendar, undated daily and weekly running logs, how to use a training log, how to set goals, how personality affects performance, how to design a training plan, a dozen key workouts, tips on fueling, a new way to think about body image, mental tips for competition, dealing with adversity, setting good mental habits, recovery strategies, reflecting on the past season, and creating positive running groups. This New Red Edition is packed with new photographs, a fresh design, hand-written notes, practical advice, and the hard-earned secrets and lessons that Lauren and Ro have learned on the pro running circuit. Also new in these editions are Lauren's killa core routine and Ro's favorite post-run yoga poses. Top runners say there are few training tools as valuable as a good training diary for the insights they can reveal. Runners of all abilities will be amazed at where a year can take them with help from the new Believe Training Journal.

This compact but exhaustive textbook, now in its significantly revised and expanded second edition, provides an essential introduction to the field quantization of light and matter with applications to atomic physics and strongly correlated systems. Following an initial review of the origins of special relativity and quantum mechanics, individual chapters are devoted to the second quantization of the electromagnetic field and the consequences of light field quantization for the description of electromagnetic transitions. The spin of the electron is then analyzed, with particular attention to its derivation from the Dirac equation. Subsequent topics include the effects of external electric and magnetic fields on the atomic spectra and the properties of systems composed of many interacting identical particles. The book also provides a detailed explanation of the second quantization of the non-relativistic matter field, i.e., the Schrödinger field, which offers a powerful tool for the investigation of many-body problems, and of atomic quantum optics and entanglement. Finally, two new chapters introduce the finite-temperature functional integration of bosonic and fermionic fields for the study of macroscopic quantum phenomena: superfluidity and superconductivity. Several solved problems are included at the end of each chapter, helping readers put into practice all that they have learned.
