Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide

Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide 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.

Synopsis:

With over 50% new material, this category killer is sure to go the distance

When the previous edition of Hal Higdon's superb training guide appeared, Grete Waitz, 9-time winner of the New York City Marathon, cheered: "Higdon's years of marathoning experience come through in this practical book. Aspiring or veteran marathoners will benefit enormously from its proven guidance."

This new edition focuses on first marathoners, women runners, and those new to the sport; and as always, Higdon shows how to build up mileage and gives advice on running long, speedwork for distance runners, defensive running strategies, and planning for peak performance.
