Start training for your next marathon

Marathon Training Programme
Dear Sports Enthusiast,
Most runners and triathletes I know would dearly love to try their hand at a marathon – if only just to say that they’ve successfully competed at this iconic distance. But they’re discouraged by the number of people they know who started training for the event – only to quit before the race because of injury or over-training.
Committing to running a marathon is not a step to be taken lightly. But if you know what you are doing in terms of training, nutrition, recovery and all the rest of it, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t complete the training – and the actual race.
And do so in a highly respectable time as well.
That’s why I commissioned John Shepherd, a longstanding contributor to Peak Performance, to construct our brand new training course Marathon Training Programme: how to run a sub 4 hour marathon .
It takes you on a 6 month, week by week, day by day training regime. Every day for the next 24 weeks you are given a specific training session and goal to achieve. Look up any day in the programme and there will be an instruction for you to get running, working out, swimming or cycling, stretching or resting.
So it’s concise, authoritative – and, above all, practical.
What sets our training information apart from the rest? In a word: science. Or, more specifically, sports science. Because at Peak Performance we’ve been publishing the very best sports science training tips and techniques for years – via our web site and monthly newsletter, and in a host of special reports and workbooks.
So you can be sure that every word of Marathon Training Programme: how to run a sub 4 hour marathon rests on a solid, proven scientific foundation.
And that you’ll get the definitive answers you need to such questions as:
  • What’s the most common mistake runners make in the opening weeks of training for a marathon?
  • How do you know if you’re running too fast a pace – even without a heart rate monitor?
  • What are the six characteristics of a good, economical running style?
  • Which stretching exercises should a runner do to keep injury at bay?
  • How far should you run without needing to carry water?
  • What can you tell from your 10k time about your marathon running prospects?
  • How do you know if you’re running your longer sessions at the correct pace – not too fast, not too slow?
  • What’s the easiest way to accurately determine your correct running threshold?
  • What’s the right way to eat during a long run?
  • Why do some people actually gain weight while training for a marathon – and how do you make sure you’re not one of them?
  • What’s the key to avoiding injury in the final weeks of your marathon training?
  • What all-important preparation should you do the day before the race?
  • How do you know if your first-half marathon pace is right for you – so you don’t ‘hit the wall’ at 18 or 20 miles?
In short, Marathon Training Programme: how to run a sub 4 hour marathon is the definitive guide to marathoning success at your first attempt.
And because it’s available as an ebook, you can start putting the ideas it contains into practice within just 24 hours.
So here’s my personal promise to you: follow the step-by-step programme we give you and, at the end of 24 weeks you’ll be ready to compete in your first marathon – and finish in a creditable 4 hours or less.
