I have bought a book called The Non-Runners Marathon Trainer.
It's based on a highly successful marathon class offered by the University of Northern Iowa, which was featured in a Runners World article.
The book follows the same 16-week, four days a week workout plan.
This is marathon running for real people, people with jobs and families and obligations outside of running.
It isn't about getting a great time. The Non Runners Marathon Trainer is a schedule that, if followed, promises to get you to the finishing line.
I think it's a fantastic book! It has everything in it from nutrition, physical and mental preparation, what happens when you 'hit the wall', and choosing the right shoes. I bought The Non Runners Marathon Trainer after reading the reviews on Amazon. I had never seen a book with such great reviews before!

As you can probably tell I am very happy for this book and would recommend it for every marathon beginner :-)
