Marathon Coaching: Sub Two-Hour Times, Phil Maffetone Shows The Way

Endurance strength training & fueling
Endurance expert and holistic health guru Dr Phil Maffetone joins us again to talk about his fascinating new book: 1:59: The Sub-Two-Hour Marathon Is Within Reach: Here’s How It Will Go Down, and What It Can Teach All Runners about Training and Racing. There is lots to learn in this interview for not just runners, but all endurance athletes and their coaches.

As you might already know Dr Phil mentored legendary triathlete Mark Allen through his key Ironman victories, as well working with triathlete Angela Naeth and race car drivers Mario and Michael Andretti, among many others.
