Velo Press Smart Marathon Training

Run your best without running yourself ragged



Through a sensible, minimalist approach, Smart Marathon Training puts runners at the start line of a marathon or half-marathon feeling strong, healthy and prepared for their best race. Other marathon training plans ask runners to crank out 70-100 miles a week. It's no wonder they're running ragged by race day. With this book you'll train smarter, running half the mileage of old-school training plans so you reach the start line feeling fresh and prepared for your best marathon. You'll train for marathon in a lot less time and avoid the injuries that come from running too much. It maps out a healthier, more economical approach to training, emphasising quality over quantity. Rather than wasting time and energy on junk miles, this dynamic programme pares down training to three essential runs per week, mixing in core work, strength training, and cycling. Smarter running combined with a solid strength and cross-training programme limit the risks of over training and burnout, all while building strength, power, and resistance to injury. With more than 80 detailed exercises, plus six easy-to-follow sample training plans for half and full marathons, Smart Marathon Training will get you to the start line feeling refreshed and ready to run your best race yet.
