Improve your racing performance through multispeed training! Whether your distance is 5K, marathon, or anything in between, this book tells you how to train smarter and run faster. Pete Pfitzinger - a world-class marathoner, distance running coach, and exercise physiologist - teams up with former Running Times editor-in-chief Scott Douglas to teach you how to: design a week-by-week training program, determine the right pace to run during speed workouts, get the most out of long runs, taper training before an important race, detect and avoid staleness and injury, determine the best strategy for each race, and achieve the optimal mental state to train and race. Included with each of five training schedules are racing tactics, mental tips, and lessons from world-class runners.
