As a marathon runner, deciding which training plan to follow can be difficult. Traditional training plans are usually designed to steadily increase your mileage as you get closer to race day but this makes it difficult to find the time to fit in any gym work. If you do start omitting your strength training, this can lead to problems such as tight hips or pain in the knees and feet. If these issues aren’t addressed, your ability to run will be affected and you may even start to worry about whether you’ll make it to the start line on marathon day!

This is why the Fundamental Sports and Fitness half and full marathon training programmes are different and have been designed to include strength and conditioning work as well as tips to help you improve your running form. We also include regular sports massages to ensure you to stay as flexible and knot-free as possible in the runup to your race.

Our marathon training plans are tailored to each runner’s specific needs, so whether you’ve just completed a 10k and are looking to take the next step with a half marathon, or are a seasoned marathon runner preparing to take on an iconic event like the London Marathon, the training schedule we design for you will ensure you reach your goals and achieve your personal best.

As part of your running membership you will receive:

  • A bespoke training plan that fits around your other commitments. When designing it, we’ll consider your training schedule, the number of days a week you can run, the type of exercises you need to be doing and the amount of recovery time you need.
  • One training session a week in our personal training studio. This session will help to improve your strength, running form and speed whilst supporting the training you may be doing elsewhere.

  • Strength and conditioning work to reduce your risk of picking up injuries.
