Unbreakable Runner Offers CrossFit Endurance™ Training Programs for Running 5K to Ultramarathon
Solve Injuries, Invigorate Training, or Break Through a Plateau with Brian MacKenzie’s New Approach
Boulder, CO, USA — October 16, 2014 — In the new book Unbreakable Runner, CrossFit Endurance™ founder Brian MacKenzie and journalist T.J. Murphy examine long-held beliefs about how to train, tearing down those traditions to reveal new principles for a lifetime of healthy, powerful running. Unbreakable Runner: Unleash the Power of Strength & Conditioning for a Lifetime of Running Strong is now available in bookstores and online. Learn more at www.unbreakablerunner.com.
At least one in three runners will get injured during their training this year, according to the American Medical Athletic Association. “Traditional running training makes too many broken runners,” says MacKenzie. In his book, MacKenzie challenges conventional training tenets such as high mileage and high-carb diets to show how reduced mileage and high-intensity training can make runners stronger, more durable athletes and prepare them for races of any distance.
Distance runners who want to invigorate their training, solve injuries, or break through a performance plateau can gain power and resilience from MacKenzie’s effective blend of run training and whole-body strength and conditioning. CrossFitters who want to conquer a marathon, half-marathon, or ultramarathon will find endurance training instruction with 8- to 12-week programs that combine CrossFit™ workouts with run-specific sessions. Unbreakable Runner includes CrossFit-based training programs for race distances from 5K to ultramarathon for beginner, intermediate, and advanced runners.
“MacKenzie has opened doors to coaches and runners, offering proven solutions to a myriad of problems that persistently vex runners of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.” – Dean Karnazes, from the Foreword
