The big book of endurance training and racing
The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing by Philip MaffetoneFeb I am trying not to let my busyness crowd out my love for reading and I have set a goal to read one book a month throughout With a full time job, a jammed training schedule and some semblance of a social life, it can be difficult to fit in, especially when I chose a doozy of a book like I did this month! Philip Maffetone. This book was over pages of expert advice on training, health and injury prevention. The areas that I found the book particularly helpful on were those of training and nutrition, partially because he had such unusual views. Something that Maffetone reinforces is the idea of training slower to race faster which places the athlete in the fat burning zone where there is a larger store of energy for endurance races.

Foreword to “The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing,” by Dr. Phil Maffetone
My athletic career started in when I answered an ad in the local paper announcing swim-team tryouts. In the nearly thirty years since, I have tried almost every training theory and coaching style in the pursuit of personal athletic excellence. The evolution to my present program was not easy. The years of regimented swim coaching had ingrained in me a very narrow-minded training philosophy, which was to do things faster. If I could just train with more yardage, and train faster, then I would most certainly race faster. Or so I thought.
