    The Best Source for Smart Marathon Training Just Got Better

    In the fall of 2003, my marathon PR was just below the Boston qualifying standard for my age: 3:08. I wanted to run better, but needed help. One day in a bookstore, I came across Scott and Pete's book. I thumbed through it and decided it was worth a shot.<BR/><BR/>I read it cover to cover that night and tore out the schedules. I posted them to my wall next to my treadmill. I followed them religiously. In 2004. I took my marathon PR down to 2:42. I then ran multiple marathons using the multiple marathoning schedule. In 2005, I dipped under 2:40 and in 2006, I cracked the top 300 U.S. list that year with a 2:32 PR. Admittedly, a book won't do the running for you; it won't get you out in the rain or get you to run that final 1200-meter repeat, but it does tell you what you need to do. <BR/><BR/>Scott Douglas' cogent writing paired with Pete's brilliant coaching expertise make this a readable, practical book. The second edition is even better. I enjoyed the addition of the easy-to-grasp flexibility/strength training diagrams as well as the inclusion of drills. <BR/><BR/>If you want to improve your marathon time, this book is for you. Buy it, put it on your bookshelf and consult it. Trust me, you won't regret spending the money.

    Hands down one of the greatest (running) books I own! It gives details on how you can improve and why, as well as concrete training plans for your next/first marathon. I recommend this for any runner, new or old!

    Run Your Fastest Marathon

    When I initially received this book I was a little skeptical I would learn new information since I own the first edition of Advanced Marathoning. After thoroughly reading the book from cover to cover, I was amazed the great deal of novel exercise theory I gained. Nearly every sentence contains a valuable training nugget. Readers learn all there is to know about how to run their best marathon through science, experience and training theory. Pete Pfitzinger and Scott Douglas do a dazzling job of explaining the science and application to runners of all abilities. Photos of running- specific exercises, drills, core and flexibility training are extremely useful. <BR/>In my opinion, Advanced Marathoning is an obligatory book for every runner who wants to become the fastest runner they can be and ultimately find out their true potential.
