Book Description

24 Oct 2012
The Hansons-Brooks Distance Project began in 1999, offering promising post-collegiate runners the support they needed to focus on developing their full potential. Lacking the resources of big-time running outfits like Nike s Oregon Project and tucked away in a minor league running town, the scrappy Hansons-Brooks team toed the start line outgunned. But the running world took notice as Hansons-Brooks athletes showed up to races in their now iconic jerseys, running as a disciplined team and quickly moving up the ranks to finish at the front of the pack in the biggest U.S. races and Olympic trials. The Hansons Marathon Method codifies the team s unconventional, science-based thinking on how to get the best possible performance out of every runner. The plan begins with the end in mind, preparing a runner's mind and body for the whole race, not just the easier early miles. Featuring precisely paced speed work and shorter, harder runs that remold a runner s muscles for long-lasting endurance, the Hansons method develops runners who won't just finish their marathon, but will master the race, feeling strong at every mile. The Hansons Marathon Method forges true marathoners from mere mortals, preparing them to withstand the hardest last miles of the race for record-breaking performance.

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

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.
