Andrew sets a calming tone with his narrative which puts you in the perfect frame of mind for dealing with all that marathon training has to throw at you! You need to be able to adapt easily to changing weather, temperature, terrain and loads of physical variables. Andrew has solid advice for a wide range of situations that may arise and helping you deal with these both mentally and physically. The book is a great length - easy to read and broken up with tips from top Marathoners, active stretching techniques, nutritional advice and advice about dealing with minor running injuries and training.
I have literally just finished the section on recovery post marathon - having finished my first in Brighton, UK on Sunday 15th April!
Great book. Must have for the first time marathoner.
FAQ: The programme is based on distance not time, it calls for 5 runs per week for the 20 weeks, the programme is easy to modify (put it in a spreadsheet), the runs peak at 20 miles.
I am about to run my first marathon and this book is what needed. Very practical.
