Marathoning - Start to Finish

Authored by Patti Finke, Warren Finke
Supplement by Janet Hamilton
Edition: 5

Marathoning encompasses far more than running 26.2 miles between the Start and Finish lines. It is an art, a science, a way of life. Start to Finish discusses the marathon from long term planning to post race recovery. It combines years of trial and error experience with up to date exercise physiology research. Since running the marathon is as much mental as physical, both psychological and physiological aspects of training and racing are integrated into a program for beginners through advanced runners. Included are 5 detailed training progressions and background information on physiology, psychology, nutrition and supplemental training.
