Human Kinetics | February 7, 2001 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
The growth of marathon running has now far surpassed the "running boom" of the late 1970s. Annually, there are nearly half a million marathon finishers in the U.S. alone, and that number is growing by almost 10 percent every year. More and more runners are now looking to go faster -- no longer simply to finish. These runners are committed to goals like setting a personal best, peaking for more than one marathon or qualifying for Boston, and are willing to put in the work necessary to achieve these goals.

As the most comprehensive book on competitive marathoning available. Advanced Marathoning offers extensive day-to-day training schedules, and it explains the scientific principles behind the training. Topics like nutrition, hydration, recovery, and fitting training around a full-time workload are covered. Training for multiple marathons in one season is also covered, complete with specific training schedules.
