“You could run a marathon in under eight hours, you could run 10 miles in under three hours.
But what if you don’t want to do that?
What if you can’t do that?”—Tom Lyle, author of Running to Your Goals article “I used to be a very athletic guy.
I had a good time running marathons, I would get to the top of hills, and I would go for it.
I was in shape.
But now I’m out of shape.
I run about seven or eight miles a day and that’s not good enough.
It’s hard enough just to run and do other things.”—Michael Schwalb, former pro runner and now coach at the University of Michigan, author The 5 Things You Need To Run at Maximum Power article “It’s a marathon runner’s dream to run a race at maximum power, and that dream is a goal that’s been attainable.
But how to do it?
How to do this, and this and this?
What is the right way to run at maximum speed?
This is where you can really find your way.
I’m going to give you a little book to start your training.
This is a book that has been written by two coaches in the last 25 years.
One of them is the legendary Tim Ferriss.
The other is my mentor, Tom Lyle.
The books are called Running to your Goals and Strength Training for Athletic Tones.
And this book, this book that Tim Ferress wrote, he’s a great coach.
But this book has been published over 25 years ago.
The book is very simple, it has no complicated formulas.
The key is to get in the zone and have fun.
And what I want you to do is read the book and you’ll learn how to run with maximum power and you will get the results.
So this is the book that you should read and you should get the book before you begin your training.”—Tom Leyle, former professional marathoner, author Running to Maximum Power and Strength for Athletic Tone article “If you are a marathoner who has had a very hard time with your training, and you want to run, you’re probably going to have to start with a very intense workout and a very heavy training regime.”—Tim Ferriss, founder of The 5-Hour Workweek and author Running for Your Life article “Running is not a game.
If you want a marathon, you need to be able to do a 10,000-meter race.
If your goal is to win the 100 meters, that’s a very difficult thing to do.
You have to be strong enough to get to that race.
But you have to train hard enough to run that race.”—Lyle, running coach at New York City University, author Runners Guide to Success article “As a coach, if you are going to be in a race and you’re trying to figure out how to get the best out of your body, you’ve got to be very aware of the physiological demands.
That’s one of the biggest things I’ve noticed.
You’ve got a lot of guys who say, ‘I’m running to a marathon.
I can’t get to my marathon.
That’ll never work.’
I’m a coach.
You need to understand the physiological requirements.
But, if your goal for a marathon is to be the best at it, you can be successful in training.”–Lyle on his book Running to the Max article “In terms of what the athlete has to work with, it’s very important to get on a high intensity program.
When I say high intensity, I mean you’ve been doing that for months.
You’re doing that to a very high intensity level, you don´t want to drop that.”—Mike and Karen Lyle of Lyle Fitness, author Training to Your Goal article “So the key is: what’s your goals for your training?
Are you looking to build the body you want, or are you looking for strength and endurance?
You’ve gotta be ready to do both.
If it’s strength and conditioning, you should be able do a few sets of 5-10,000, then 10-15,000.
If that’s your goal, you have a few weeks to do them.”—Coach Tim Lyle on how to prepare for the 2018 NYC Marathon
