Book Review – Joanne R4W Member
The Ultimate guide to Marathon Running (second edition)
Updated for this year, this magbook provides an excellent introduction for the novice runner or for those who need to increase their awareness of running terminology because they are running the marathon distance for the first time.
It’s packed full of running information from training techniques, nutrition information, kit and shoe advice, staying motivated, injury treatment and running styles.
There is an extremely useful stretching section which provides clear guidance on running specific stretches and I found the nutritional section extremely helpful.
Would recommend this magbook to anyone who is training for a marathon
