To those planning to run Munich Marathon in October its time to start thinking about training. Officially we start training in June but in the meanwhile its time to put on those trainers and get some base miles in. Our training through the summer will in short consist of aerobic runs, speed sessions & Long slow distance. Below are a selection of web sites with marathon training plans have a look and you will get the idea, if your a marathon virgin have a chat with Chris, Martin or Dave, we have run a few between us!
