Synopsis

Running a marathon is one of the greatest challenges you can set yourself but there are no short cuts to success. Even if you're pretty fit, you can't do the 26.2 miles of the course on willpower alone. You need discipline and professional guidance. The Expert's Guide to Marathon Training is a comprehensive and inspirational 16-week training programme for runners of every age and ability, a step-by-step schedule which can be personally tailored to fit every reader. This book will show you how to plan ahead to build up endurance, how to avoid injuries, how to rest between runs and how to develop the mental toughness to take a full marathon in your stride. The Expert's Guide to Marathon Training comes complete with a week-by-week training log with tick boxes and diary where you can record the miles and times you put in, then readjust your schedule to match your progress. Whether you are an experienced runner or a 'penguin' taking part just for the fun, this is the book you need to inspire you for the challenge of the longest run in sport. With full colour illustrations and handy tips it sure is miles ahead of the competition.
