Men’s Journal Health Book of the Year

In Unbreakable Runner, CrossFit Endurance™ founder Brian MacKenzie and journalist T.J. Murphy examine long-held beliefs about how to train, tearing down those traditions to reveal new principles for a lifetime of healthy, powerful running.

Unbreakable Runner challenges conventional training tenets such as high mileage and high-carb diets to show how reduced mileage and high-intensity training can make runners stronger, more durable athletes and prepare them for races of any distance.

Distance runners who want to invigorate their training, solve injuries, or break through a performance plateau can gain power and resilience from MacKenzie’s effective blend of run training and whole-body strength and conditioning.

CrossFitters who want to conquer a marathon, half-marathon, or ultramarathon will find endurance training instruction with 8- to 12-week programs that combine CrossFit™ workouts with run-specific sessions.

Unbreakable Runner includes CrossFit-based training programs for race distances from 5K to ultramarathon for beginner, intermediate, and advanced runners. Build a better running body with this CrossFit Endurance-based approach to running training.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Among runners, preventing injuries is always a hot topic, but unfortunately, also an unavoidable one. Unbreakable Runner treats this potential problem as central to any training program for runners. Thus, instead of emphasizing the high mileage and high carb regimens of other trainers, strength and conditioning coach T.J. Murphy and CrossFit Endurance founder Brian MacKenzie describe strategies that will prepare you and your body for the rigors of the road. A paperback original that can literally save you pain. Editor's recommendation.

    Brian MacKenzie'smethod of combining the skill of running with strength and conditioning will prepare any runner to stay 'unbreakable' by preventing injuries while gaining strength and speed. I've been a running coach for 15 years and once I started using MacKenzie's programs my athletes have all enjoyed race PRs as well as reducing and eliminating old injuries from overtraining. Highly recommend this book for all runners and coaches.
