Overview

Especially in tough economic times, running offers an affordable and positive way to relieve stress

and gain a sense of accomplishment. Marathons and—more than ever—half-marathons are the ultimate achievement for runners and have experienced an unprecedented boom in the last several years.

 

New hunger for reliable information on marathon and half-marathon training, as well as new technologies that have revolutionized ordinary people’s ability to train intelligently, means the time is right for a new edition of longtime Runner’s World contributor Hal Higdon’s classic guide to taking the guesswork out of preparing for a marathon, whether it’s a reader’s first or fiftieth.

Since its original publication in 1993, Higdon’s definitive manual has sold over a quarter of a million

copies through all channels. The book is such a consistent seller for many reasons, but above and

beyond all the others is this one: It works. At the core of the book remains Higdon’s clear and essential information on training, injury prevention, and nutrition. With more than 25 percent new material, this fourth edition of a running classic will be a must-own for both longtime runners and those new to the sport.

    It's a good read, but not very insightful.

    I enjoyed the book and while there may be information that a new runner might find useful, by and large I didn't really pick anything up I had not see elsewhere. I think Higdon is geared more to the mainstream runner and not as much the high end competitive runner. If you are just starting out and are looking for basic information, this would be helpful. If you have some running under your' belt already and your' looking for detailed plans and more in depth information I would recommend Daniels or Pfitz instead.

    I'm a believer!!!

    This book was just the help I needed to help me run my first marathon. It was extremely helpful from the start of my training all the way to the finish line. I have to credit my hard training and Hal Higdon for helping me beat my goal time by 20 minutes. His down to earth advice for all levels of runners as well as his sense of humor make it required reading for anyone wanting to run a marathon!!!
