The 5th edition of this training guide is available at
Start to Finish discusses the marathon from long term planning to post race recovery. It combines years of trial and error experience with up to date exercise physiology research. Since running the marathon is as much mental as physical, both psychological and physiological aspects of training and racing are integrated into a program for beginners through advanced runners. Included are 5 detailed training progressions and background information on physiology, psychology, nutrition and supplemental training.
