Description:

Too many runners train for marathons and half-marathons only to find themselves injured before they even get to the starting line. They overtrain, functioning under the notion that if some running is good, then more must be better. Smart Marathon Trainingmaps out a healthier, more streamlined approach to training for distance races, one that emphasizes quality over quantity. The book offers an innovative plan that pares down marathon training to the essential runs and not a step more, combining these with a solid strength and cross-training program. Through this sensible approach to marathon training, runners will arrive at the start line fresh, free of injury, and prepared for their best race yet.
