As the UK’s leading running magazine, Runner’s World has been helping aspiring marathon runners to reach their goals for almost 20 years. In that time we’ve been asked lots of questions on how to successfully get ready to run 26.2 miles.
With an easy-to-follow Q&A format, this new 180-page special edition features 143 of marathoners’ most common queries answered by the most knowledgeable experts in running. Covering everything from training, nutrition and injury-prevention right through to what to do on race day itself, it’s got all the answers for every step of your marathon journey.
The guide includes:
Runner’s World Coach: Marathon Training Guide is now available nationwide from WHSmith for £7.99.
If I purchase the book is there anything in it that would benifit me? I have Meniere's Disease and Fibromyalgia, last Christmas I was just under the 20 stone mark, now I am just under the 15 st and intend to lose more.
But I am not a runner,I'm a walker. Not a trekker or rambler, I walk on paved surfaces, and I walk at under 4mph so from what I read in Runner's World I glean the fact that I would not be allowed to enter a half or full marathon race. My local running club says this is because they can not expect the those manning feed stations, first aid posts and the finish line to wait up for me and other like me. Is there somewhere out there anyone who offers advice for walkers like me, e.g. training nutrition and races?
Moonwalks take place in London and Edinburgh and are full marathon distances for walkers (I think they also do the HM distance and have recently introduced the ultra). I have some friends who do them and since the first one they have become quite competitive. I'm sure there will be information and forums linked to them to give advice on training etc.
Well done on the weight loss!
