The book also goes in to the background and reason for each type of workout and highlights the pace and heart rate you should be aiming for.
Also has some decent chapters on strength training, diet, health etc.
Edit: Got a 13 minute PB with this plan on a horrible wet and windy day in Dublin in 2015. Negative split too with the second half a couple of minuites quicker, I felt I had a bit more in the tank too. I will be using this plan again
The plans are tough, and maybe too tough for a first marathon, but they really work. I easily knocked off 17 mins in the space of 6 months.
There is so much information that even someone who is planning to run a marathon would benefit this book. Don't be put off by the grey-hound thin Elites on the front cover.
An essential buy if you really want to improve your marathon times.
Prompt service. Great condition. Positive alround.
