In this episode we had the pleasure of speaking with both Pete Pfitzinger and Scott Douglas about the 3rd edition of their book, Advanced Marathoning. As you will hear in the episode, both of us will be using a plan from this book to train for our sub-3 hour marathon attempt, so we made sure to ask lots of questions. 


The book is divided into 2 parts and has some new features, in addition to having been completely revised since the 2nd edition:

Training components

Ch. 1.     Elements of training

Ch. 2.     Nutrition and hydration

Ch. 3.     Balancing training and recovery

Ch. 4.     Supplementary training

Ch. 5.     The older (and wiser) marathoner – New in 3rd ed.

Ch. 6.     Tapering for peak marathon performance

Ch. 7.     Race day strategy

Training programs

Ch. 8.     Following the schedules

Ch. 9.     Marathon training up to 55 miles (89 km) per week

Ch. 10.  Marathon training on 55 to 70 miles (89 to 113 km) per week

Ch. 11.  Marathon training on 70 to 85 miles (113-137 km) per week

Ch. 12.  Marathon training on more than 85 miles (137 km) per week

Ch. 13.  Multiple marathoning

New in the 3rd edition is Appendix B: Equivalent race times from 10k to marathon. Some more recent athletes are featured in the chapters, like Eliud Kipchoge, and Molly Huddle.
