Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Old-school marathon training plans ask runners to crank out 70 to 100 miles a week. It's no wonder those who make it to the start line are running ragged. Smart Marathon Training maps out a healthier, more economical approach to training that emphasizes quality over quantity. This innovative program eliminates junk miles, paring down training to three essential runs per week and adding a dynamic strength and cross-training program to build overall fitness. Runners will train for their best performance in less time and avoid the injuries, overtraining, and burnout that come from running too much.

Smart Marathon Training builds up a runner's body to resist injury. Runners gain the strength they need to run long using functional exercises that target the hips, glutes, and quads. Running is a full-body sport, so this training program also builds a strong core and upper body to avoid injuries that begin above the waist.

No one fakes a marathon or half-marathon—everyone has to do the work. But Smart Marathon Training replaces long, grinding miles with low-impact cross-training. Horowitz outlines a cycling plan to complement run workouts, boosting base fitness while saving runners' bodies for their best runs.

With more than 75 detailed exercises plus six easy-to-follow training plans for half- and full marathons, Smart Marathon Training will get you to the start line feeling refreshed and ready to run your best race yet.

Synopsis:

Train better, run smarter.

Old-school marathon training plans ask runners to crank out 70 to 100 miles a week. Upside: Plenty of miles. Downside: You’re running ragged by race day. With Smart Marathon Training, you can train for your best performance in a marathon or half marathon with fewer miles, in much less time. And you will avoid the injuries that come from running too much.

Smart Marathon Training maps out a healthy, economical approach to training, emphasizing quality over quantity. By eliminating junk miles, this innovative program pares down training to three essential runs per week and then adds a dynamic strength and cross-training program to build overall fitness. You’ll sidestep burnout and overtraining while increasing strength, power, and resistance to injury.

With more than 75 detailed exercises, plus six easy-to-follow training plans for half- and full marathons, Smart Marathon Training will get you to the start line feeling fresh and ready for your best race.

Features 6 marathon and half-marathon training plans

Synopsis:

Too many runners train for marathons and half-marathons only to find themselves injured before they even get to the starting line. They overtrain, functioning under the notion that if some running is good, then more must be better.

Smart Marathon Training maps out a healthier, more streamlined approach to training for distance races, one that emphasizes quality over quantity. The book offers an innovative plan that pares down marathon training to the essential runs and not a step more, combining these with a solid strength and cross-training program.

Through this sensible approach to marathon training, runners will arrive at the start line fresh, free of injury, and prepared for their best race yet.
