Summary Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier, or other athlete seeking greater endurance? The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing teaches athletes how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic potential, and be injury-free for many productive years. Dr. Philip Maffetone's approach to endurance offers a truly "individualized" outlook and unique system that emphasizes building a strong aerobic base for increased fat burning, weight loss, sustained energy, and a healthy immune system. Good nutrition and stress reduction are also key to this common-sense, big-picture approach. In addition, Dr. Maffetone dispels many of the commonly held myths that linger in participatory sports-and which adversely impact performance-and explains the "truths" about endurance, such as: ; The need to train slower to race faster will enable your aerobic system to improve endurance ; Why expensive running shoes can actually cause foot and leg injuries ; The fact that refined carbohydrates actually reduce endurance energy and disrupt hormone balance ; And more. If you are looking to increase your endurance and maximize your athletic potential, The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing is your one-stop guide to training and racing effectively.
