Pete Pfitzinger ©2016
You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

Pete Pfitzinger, a two-time Olympic marathoner, exercise physiologist, coach, and co-author of Faster Road Racing: 5K to Half Marathon and the bestselling Advanced Marathoning, provides insights on how to develop your training program to reach your potential, whether you are running a 5K, 10K, half marathon, or marathon.


In this free webinar, Pfitzinger offers details on the right balance of training to optimize your performance, including long runs, tempo runs, VO2 max training, speed training, and recovery runs. The session will include a discussion of how to taper your training over the last two weeks so you are fit and fresh for a personal best. This webinar will be useful for any runner who wants to improve his or her performance. Presented in conjunction with the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon.

Pete Pfitzinger, the top American finisher in the 1984 and 1988 Olympic marathons, is a respected coach, exercise physiologist, and administrator of high-performance sport. He established himself as one of the best marathoners in U.S. history by outkicking Alberto Salazar to win the 1984 U.S. Olympic Trials. That same year he received the DeCelle Award for America’s best distance runner and was named Runner of the Year by the Road Runners Club of America. He is also a two-time winner of the San Francisco Marathon and finished third in the 1987 New York City Marathon. He is a member of the Road Runners Club of America’s Hall of Fame.
