4. TRAINING


A blend of art and application
Start by looking at your foundations
Defining your training purpose
Defining your ' Big One': big goals, little goals, cardboard box goals
Don't just think about it
Start where you left off
Training fundamentals: the principles of every good training journey
Understanding types of running
Training zones: heart rate and effort perception - 'How do you know how hard to run?'
Know the lingo: training terminology
A phased approach to planning
The elements of a perfect training plan
Get to grips with workouts
So you want to go faster?
So you want to get stronger (10k)?
Going for distance (half marathon)
Going longer - 26.2 and beyond
Monitor it
Don't press the 'dickhead button'
Training makes you


5. NUTRITION


Getting it right
No magic recipe
What we really need and why one size does not fit all
Sources and choices
When a relationship with food and running isn't a healthy one

Post-race nutrition

After the race - recovery
After the race - reflection
