Marathon: You Can Do It! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shows how just about anyone can run a marathon and, given the right attitude and training, finish the race.

Synopsis:

Marathon running is a sport that many consider too daunting, better in the viewing than the doing. Olympian Jeff Galloway dispels such notions in a book that takes the mystery — and misery — out of distance running. Marathon! shows how just about anyone can run a marathon and, given the right attitude and training, finish the race. Galloway has designed a low-mileage marathon training program that has been used by over 10,000 people with a 98 percent success rate. The book includes the latest information on workouts, form innovations, pace charts, prediction tables, and motivation strategies.

Synopsis:

Jeff Galloway is a world-class distance runner and author of the best-selling Galloway's Book on Running. Galloway, along with Bill Rogers and Frank Shorter, was at the forefront of the running revolution of the '80s. For over 20 years, Jeff has toured the country, giving running workshops, hosting races, and lecturing to runners. About five years ago he discovered a unique way of training that allowed just about anyone to run a marathon. The secret: walk breaks. Marathons have surged in popularity in the last five years. And runners these days are different from runners in the '80s and early '90s: they want to finish a marathon. They are not obsessed (as were earlier runners) with high performance. They are having fun. This is Jeff's new book for 21st century marathoners. It has programs and advice for all levels of runners, and will show you how to run a marathon without injuring yourself or getting a divorce.
