Scott Douglas’ Terse Bloviation

Third Edition of Advanced Marathoning Published

Pete Pfitzinger and I found a way to make doing a third edition take more time than starting from scratch. Perhaps readers will benefit. Lots of updates on nutrition, sport psychology, supplementary training, and, of course, the actual running. We also have a new chapter for older marathoners, and we collected reader comments/tweaks/questions from the first two editions, and replied to that valuable feedback.

I’m a fan of the new cover, and am honored that Molly Huddle wrote the foreword for us.

    When you say “older” marathoners, what ages do you include in that? I am 54 and I find training now, comparef to my first marathon at 44 to be very different.

    You count.

    We don’t have a hard and fast age cutoff in mind. But certainly mid 50s running is different from mid 40s running, if you were doing enough in your 40s to be marathoning.

    I say this as a 55-year-old who does tempo runs at what used to be my easy pace.
