10 Great Webpages to kickstart your Marathon Training. 

Article by Gary Jones 28.10.15  


Firstly, Are you mad? 

The marathon distance of 26.2 miles takes preparation and time to complete before, during and after the event. Yes, there are further distances you can but the marathon does hold a certain appeal that in my opinion can’t beat. 
Last time I completed a marathon I didn’t put the training in so I have unfinished business and a 5 hours 38 minute marathon to beat. Next time it will be different and I will put the training in the complete and enjoy it. 

I did however compile so good webpages that helped with my training including training plans, podcasts to listen to and tips for recovery.
