“A modern book for the modern athlete, combining great insight, quality, and practical value.” — From the foreword by Tim Noakes, best-selling author of The Lore of Running

World-renowned coach Bobby McGee delivers the perfect performance tool for athletes. Packed with 21 training plans and more than 80 workouts, Run Workouts for Runners and Triathletes will unlock every runner’s true potential. Athletes at all levels will benefit from McGee’s methods and race-tested workouts—including tempo and fartlek running, bricks, interval repeats, and hills—and learn how to balance effort and pace with training volume. These sweatproof pages contain the schedules, drills, and tips you need to be your own best coach and compete in races and triathlons of any distance, from a 5K to the marathon.

Run Workouts for Runners and Triathletes will add variety to your training and keep challenging you to run your best.

Bobby McGee is an internationally certified track and field coach whose top-ranked athletes have produced world records and won world championships. He coaches runners and triathletes and has prepared athletes for the Olympic games since 1992.

Mark Plaatjes is the 1993 marathon gold medal winner at the World Track and Field championships. He coaches recreational and elite runners.

Synopsis:

To improve performance, athletes need to vary their workouts. For runners, this means alternating endurance runs with shorter but more difficult courses.

It provides more than 20 different training plans along with detailed advice on determining pace and balancing hard and easy days.

Along with these classic training techniques, the authors include favorite workouts that reflect their own unique and highly successful methodology. Whether trying to break a personal record in a 10K or polishing up for the running leg of a triathlon, this book helps runners and triathletes at all levels break out of the dreaded runner's rut.
