Lent by Jen

An interesting short book which is helping tempt me into some marathon plans (at some stage). As with the other Teach Yourself books it breaks things down into handy stages. There is some odd stuff about a 3 hour run needing 5 hours including getting dressed and showered at the end… but generally all sensible advice. There’s a training plan for the new runner which could have done with some variants for the slightly more experienced, and an excellent diary from a woman who never thought she could run one…

Interesting stuff!
