Preparing for a marathon for the first time can immediately freak you out even before hitting the pavement. So, how do you go about putting together a progressive training schedule that will optimise running performance, reduce the risk of injury and implement the correct nutritional strategy?

What people need to appreciate when going through a challenging preparation like this is the wear and tear it takes both physically and mentally. The mileage of most marathon-training schedules on a graph would tend to show a straight, slowly rising line followed by a short, steep plunge during the taper phase.


Programme Breakdown

After badly injuring my back, the last thing I thought I would be doing was running the 2018 London Marathon only 10 months later. This would not have been possible without Chris and after a consultation where I explained my injury, my lack of running experience and that I had a place in the London marathon we began training.

Chris is an excellent trainer. On day 1 Chris sat down with me to discuss my aims and lifestyle to ensure the programme he was creating would fit in and be realistic and manageable alongside my hectic job and social life. Once the detailed programme was created, Chris set about educating me on how to eat to fuel to ensure I would have the energy to see me through the more demanding weeks of training.
