Publisher's Summary

Long distance running is much like any other fitness training. If you want to improve, you need a good plan that has a progressive nature. If you are new to this game, you need a solid foundation to build on. Having a running program is not the only thing that you need. Sound advice and running tips should be taken from someone who has "walked the walk", or in this case, "ran the run".
Hi, my name is James Atkinson from jimshealthandmuscle.com. I'm a qualified fitness coach and personal trainer and I have a fair bit of running advice that I would like to share with you. When I was around 18 years old, I was a terrible runner! In fact, I failed the basic fitness test for army entrance on running alone, and I failed big time! Several years later, I was clearing 1.5 mile running circuits in eight minutes and 22 seconds and could easily run a marathon any day of the week! I would like to share my knowledge and training experiences with you.
If you are a beginner when it comes to running, this information will no doubt give you advice that will probably not have even crossed your mind before. If you are already a runner and are looking to make more progression, you are also in the right place. I know that it is easy to get stuck on a training plateau, so I have also added some information and training methods to this book that will help you leave the plateau behind.

Great Tips

Loved this audiobook, as I'm approaching a couple of marathons I thought I'd see if there was anything missing from my training. I certainly have helped myself with a lot of things in this book!

Made me ready to take on the marathon challenge

This audio book was well read and the content of the book was exactly what I needed. Since beginning the book I have signed up to do the Edinburgh Marathon and will be doing some other distance and terrain challenges along the way. James has a great story and is humbly inspiring and Matt does a great job with reading and explaining everything.
