Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide: Advice, Plans, and Programs for Half and Full Marathons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Especially in tough economic times, running offers an affordable and positive way to relieve stress

and gain a sense of accomplishment. Marathons and—more than ever—half-marathons are the ultimate achievement for runners and have experienced an unprecedented boom in the last several years.

 
New hunger for reliable information on marathon and half-marathon training, as well as new technologies that have revolutionized ordinary peoples ability to train intelligently, means the time is right for a new edition of longtime Runners World contributor Hal Higdons classic guide to taking the guesswork out of preparing for a marathon, whether its a readers first or fiftieth.

Since its original publication in 1993, Higdons definitive manual has sold over a quarter of a million

copies through all channels. The book is such a consistent seller for many reasons, but above and

beyond all the others is this one: It works. At the core of the book remains Higdons clear and essential information on training, injury prevention, and nutrition. With more than 25 percent new material, this fourth edition of a running classic will be a must-own for both longtime runners and those new to the sport.

About the Author

HAL HIGDON has contributed to Runners World longer than any other writer and is the author of 34 books. He ran eight times in the United States Olympic Trials and won four World Masters Championships. He is one of the founders of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA).
