Présentation de l'éditeur

What will it take to run a marathon in less than two hours?

The world’s fastest times for the marathon have been dropping since the distance of 26.2 miles was made official nearly one hundred years ago. But after a noticeable decline that occurred for a half century, the times, while still edging lower, have stalled several minutes north of two hours for the past decade.

For the first time, 1:59 examines what it will take for an elite distance runner to go sub–two hours. It will require more than raw talent, optimal body size, and great athletic genes. In order to become marathon’s Roger Bannister and smash this elusive record, this runner must follow a healthy diet and an individualized training regimen that takes advantage of specific environmental factors (“live high, train low”). Because precious seconds count over each mile run, other critical considerations include improved running form and economy, sharpened mental focus, and wearing the right type of racing flats (or even going barefoot).

The athlete who finally breaks distance running’s most tantalizing barrier will become a worldwide celebrity overnight. Will the runner be a Kenyan, an Ethiopian, an American, or a marathoner from another country? And how soon will it happen?

By providing a unique window into the highly competitive world of elite marathon running, this book also allows running enthusiasts to have a thorough understanding of the true potential of endurance athletes. And in turn, they can apply the same training and racing principles discussed in 1:59 to their own running, whether it’s a 10K, half marathon, marathon, or ultramarathon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 100% accurate and heart rate training works, its slow but effective in the long run. 21 août 2014
Par Sanjay Dalal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Excellent read and gives a clear understanding of endurance training. The book is perfect for anyone trying to get leaner, fitter and faster. Its a slow and gradual process to follow and training on heart rate is the way to go. I highly recommend all to buy Phil's books of " Endurance Training and Racing". After running numerous marathons and doing two ironman races, i realised my training was more focused on intervals and tempos and doing the long runs relatively hard. Now i have switched to running slow which has resulted in running faster at a lower heart rate. No injuries and body has become lean. Follow Phil's clean diet and it works, Hope this helps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Whether or not your goal (hope or dream! ) ... 25 août 2014
Par James T Hixson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Whether or not your goal (hope or dream!) is to run a 1:59 marathon, there is much in this book that is valuable to any distance runner. The information about the Lydiard method of training is essential, and arguably the most well-known, but the chapters on nutrition, feet and the brain provide much information that is both surprising and valuable. At the end of the book, just in case you want to see your competition, the authors provide a list of the most promising candidates to run 4:35/mile pace for 26.2 miles!

This book is a focused version of his previous work. It's a light and interesting read. Would be interesting to see Maffetone studying Kilian Jornet and other trail/ultra elites the way he approached the Kenyan runners in this book.

Not quite as good a book as I thought it would be. While some of the info I would agree with, I'm not quite totally sold on the whole slower heart rate training philosophy. As an older runner approaching 60, I would be reduced to fast walking rather than running if I went by the author's heart rate training calculations. I still think the best way to get faster is to incorporate interval speed work into one's training along with some hill work and slower long distance running. I do agree with the author's contention that we need to eat healthier with fewer food additives and preservatives. But the thought of running an entire marathon by burning just stored fat with no supplemental carbs along the way (whether you're a Kenyan or not) is just too far fetched for me. While the sub 2hr marathon may indeed happen, I don't see the Kenyans getting there by constantly monitoring their heart rates.
