I am looking for a good training plan to help me build up to a marathon in September. I hope to train regularly to achieve a good time.
I have seen on many websites that you have to pay for a training plans, especially time/goal specific plans.
Also I have seen lots of offers for training books.
What are people's experiences of such books or paying for plans. Should I stick with the standard non-specific free plans or should I invest in detailed plans and read the books to gain benefit through the theory.
Any views would be useful.
