More than half a million people have successfully reached their goals using the training programs offered in this definitive guide. Marathon is among the bestselling running books of all time for many reasons, but above all others is this one: It works.
At the core of this edition remains Hal Higdon’s clear and essential information on injury prevention, training, and nutrition as well as all-new chapters on women’s running, half-marathons, and charity running.
Running is basically a simple sport. You lead with the left foot, follow with the right foot, and continue. Except now we have heart-rate monitors, global positioning devices, and high-tech shoes. This book demystifies the marathon experience and allows each runner to achieve peak performance without anguish or pain.
Let Hal Higdon, longtime contributor to Runner’s World magazine and veteran of more than 100 marathons, guide you through the training and preparations to ensure that you cross the finish line in triumph.
Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide will take the guesswork out of marathon training, whether it’s for your first or 50th.
