Marathon training can be a tricky and confusing business, but this guide will be with you every step of the way.
There’s no one-size-fits-all way to train for a marathon, as we all have different fitness levels, different time commitments and different goals. Instead of offering you an off-the-shelf training plan, this 54-page guide will explain the important components of marathon training, so you can make the best choices for you.
Designed to work with your training plan, it will explain the benefits of the different types of runs you’ll be doing and give you reassurance when the going gets tough.
As well as this, it will help you prepare mentally and practically for the race, from getting the right mindset on race day to making sure you’ve got everything you need to run 26.2 miles.
