From the Publisher

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.

Advanced Marathoning contains all the information you ll need to run faster, peak for multiple marathons without injury, and meet your marathon goal whether it s running a personal best, qualifying for the Boston Marathon or winning your age division. Extensive, day-to-day training schedules are targeted to your weekly mileage and length of training program (12, 18, or 24 weeks). These training schedules will have you racing at peak speed, whether you re targeting one race or several during the season. The more you know about why and how the plan works, the more motivated you ll be to stick with the workouts. You ll also be better able to assess your progress as you get closer to the big race. You ll learn the scientific principles behind what makes you a faster marathoner and which workouts you need to improve. Many factors can affect your marathon success. Advanced Marathoning gives you information on everything critical to your success, including which types of training are most important for success and which are a waste of time, eating and drinking for top performance in training and racing, which types of nonrunning training have the biggest impact on your marathon times, finding the time and energy to fit training into real life, tracking your progress, and planning and implementing your race-day strategy.
