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.

HASH(0x9394eba0) étoiles sur 5 No new insights 13 décembre 2015

I bought the book after reading positive reviews as well as from what I read about Dr Philip Maffetone from the book "Natural Born Heroes" (by Chris McDougall). According to McDougall ,Dr Philipp has an unconventional but highly effective ideas on running and nutrition. These ideas, despite the lack of scientific evidence, seems to work. Since I found these ideas interesting, I decided to purchase the book.

- Written in a clear and concise manner and is easy to read.
- There is no overloading of materials and eschews the long-winded approach of by some other running books

- There is no new insights or ideas how the 2 hour mark can be breached
- There is nothing new about running at all in this book and for those who are knowledgeable about running will learn nothing

Maffetone has gained recent attention from being mentioned in the latest McDougall book, Natural Born Heroes. He apparently has written quite a few. This seems to be his latest. As a writer I'd say he can use a little help, which he got. But I'm more interested in what it has to say. And I'm not too sure I would be expecting his predictions to materialize any time soon, at least not in the way he has it. Specifically he claims that the dominance of East Africans in distance running will decline. While that is possible, I don't see it happening right away, and I certainly do not expect the spotlight to just shift back to western runners. His training technique is interesting but I think misses the essentials of what makes a great runner: growing up in a culture in which heavy physical activity is the norm, as described in the just released Parker book, Racing the Rain. If, like many Africans, you grow up running miles to school barefoot, every day, while not being a part of our industrial junk food culture, you will develop into at least a good runner. So I am not looking for too many more great runners to come along from the US or Europe. If a marathon is ever done in under 2:00, it's going to be by an African.

HASH(0x93db0050) étoiles sur 5 Must read for runners of all levels 1 novembre 2014

I had been hearing a lot about the great results from HR training and upon researching found out about Dr Maffetone, his method, successes and new book. Not only does it show what it will take for an elite runner to breat the 2 hour barrier but it offers insight for the average runner to get faster and remain injury free all while running slower.

At first it was a slow slog but in the month since I have incorperated HR training I am beginning to see the gains. Also since I am not stressing my body and paying better attention to rest, recovery and diet as prescribed by Dr Maffetone, I am not fatigued and have been able to log more miles, focus more on breathing and form as well as have better contol over my weight.

I can't recommend this book enough for any runner, especially those who has seen a plateau in their training or been battling injury.

HASH(0x93e9ff00) étoiles sur 5 Another good book from the master 21 octobre 2014

Maffetone is a master of running and exercise. This time his focus is on world-class performance, but he does not forget that every athlete should be healthy. In this book he shows how everyone (not only elite runners) can achieve good performance without sacrificing their health.
