Review

"Keith and Kevin Hanson have been training professional and amateur distance runners for over 20 years. Last year the brothers, along with Luke Humphrey, an exercise physiologist and one of their coaches, published "Hansons Marathon Method." In it, they've thrown out just about every standard of the marathon training program...Unlike other marathon training programs, which typically have runs of 20 miles or longer, the Hansons method tops out at 16 miles, an appealing draw." -- "New York Times" "You might expect a training program devised by the Hanson brothers, Keith and Kevin, to be a little different than the usual rehashing of principles and schedules. Given the success of athletes from the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project, you wouldn't be surprised if it was effective, too." -- "Runner's World" "With his wealth of knowledge, and the Hanson's assistance, Luke Humphrey crafts a fantastic book that is easy to digest and understand. The book is a quick read and breaks down the entire program nicely. "Hansons Marathon Method" is purely based on science. Every single run is an important part of the entire program. There is a strategy and logic to everything the plan calls for you to do." -- The RUNiverse "Kevin and Keith Hanson have years of experience coaching athletes at many levels. Their knowledge of the sport is evident in their ability to continually develop athletes and take them to the next level. In addition, Luke Humphrey's science background coupled with being a top-tier marathoner brings a unique and beneficial perspective to training. Not only can Luke provide the scientific approach to the training methods, but he's done the workouts and had successful results. The results have been proven at every level, from the beginner to the elite, the Hanson's training system works. With the coaching experience of Kevin and Keith and the science background Luke brings to the table, you have an incredible wealth of knowledge, and arguably one of

Product Description

In Hansons Marathon Method, the coaches of the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project reveal the methods they’ve used to turn their runners into race winners, national champions, and Olympians. Hansons Marathon Method offers a radical overhaul of marathon training that promises to turn any runner into a true marathoner and help experienced marathoners set new personal bests.

Hansons Marathon Method does away with mega-long runs and high-mileage weekends—two outdated traditions that make most runners miserable. Instead, runners using the Hansons method will gradually build up to the moderate-high mileage required for marathon success, spreading those miles more sensibly throughout the week. Running easy days mixed with precisely paced speed, strength, and tempo workouts, runners will steel their bodies and minds to run the hardest miles of the marathon.

Both Beginner and Advanced training programs feature the unique Hansons 16-mile long run which, as part of the Hansons program, is ideal for preparing the body for the marathon. Humphrey explains how runners should set their goal race pace and shows how to customize the Hansons method to their own needs, like adding extra racing, running more miles, and handling training interruptions.

Detailed nutrition and hydration chapters help runners pinpoint their personal energy and hydration needs so they know precisely how much to eat and drink during workouts, race week, race day, and for recovery. The Hansons approach to pacing and nutrition means marathoners will never hit the wall.

Hansons Marathon Method lays out the smartest marathon training program available from one of the most accomplished running groups in the nation. Using this innovative approach, runners will mold real marathon muscles, train their body to never hit the wall, and prepare to run their fastest marathon.

5.0 out of 5 stars still to use the plan 21 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having purchased the book in January I am currently in the preparation stage of using the Hansons plan for my Marathon in July. In general the book straight forward and easy to read/use with the caveat of the volume you have to commit to. With all of the ancilliary chapters on stretching and diet etc it covers off all of the items you need to consider for your first or multiple marathon. Triathlete Europe has featured this book as well for its use in Ironman training once I am in the 18 week training I will be adapting the plan to work in triathlon.

A different perspective in how to approach the marathon it is well written and an enjoyable read giving the basic message and the theory to back it up. Need to see if it delivers a PB in the Autumn then I might upgrade it to 5 stars.

This book is enlightening and really focuses your attention on cumulative fatigue and the benefits that brings. It goes into the science and how and why quite a lot which I really liked.
