Endurance Athlete's Edge
In Endurance Athlete's Edge, author Marc Evans guides these serious competitors toward high-level fitness, flawless technique, and superior competitive performance. Selected as the USA National Triathlon Team coach and manager in 1989 and 1990, Evans has helped countless athletes move their performance standards ever higher. Through years of working with top athletes, such as Scott Tinley, he has developed a program that produces outstanding results in training and competition.
Here, Evans teaches readers the most efficient swimming, cycling, and running techniques through numerous photographs and 50 performance drills. He includes prescriptions for strength training, flexibility, and nutrition, as well as advice for mental training and race preparation.
Athletes and coaches alike will value the many effective training tables and charts carefully developed by Evans. He provides a series of templates that enable readers to customize training schedules. The result is a week-by-week training prescription for each sport, including what percentage of the training should be done in each of four intensity zones. Readers can simply refer to handy pace charts to match their effort to the prescribed intensity levels. The special, systematic table of periodization makes this difficult concept easy to apply, helping readers to reach peak fitness at just the right time for major competitions.
