Book description:

Improve your racing performance through multispeed training! Whether your distance is 5K, marathon, or anything in-between, this book tells you how to train smarter and run faster. Pete Pfitzinger—a world-class marathoner, distance running coach, and exercise physiologist—teams up with former Running Times editor Scott Douglas to teach you how to • design a week-by-week training program, • determine the right pace to run during speed workouts, • get the most out of long runs, • taper training before an important race, • detect and avoid staleness and injury, • determine the best strategy for each race, and • achieve the optimal mental state to train and race. Included with each of five training schedules are racing tactics, mental tips, and lessons from world-class runners. Whatever distance you plan to race, Road Racing for Serious Runners will guide you to peak performance!
