Forget those crowded city marathons, there are lots of other interesting ones to try. The marathon with the greatest descent may be hot but is quite literally downhill all the way. The Dead Sea marathon (Jordan, 8th of April 1011) starts on the highlands of Amman and then drops 1300m over the course to the lowest point on the planet at the Dead Sea. It’s still a long way though so make sure that you have done the requsite 3 months training, including some cross training, resistance, speed work as well as endurance. Running downhill is particularly hard on the knees, so strong quads and hamstrings are also essential.
The nature of the home service that our personal trainers do means that often it’s very outdoorsy so it’s great practice for running events of all kinds. Of course there are lots of other ways that we can make you fitter and lighter if you don’t fancy running or are perhaps a bit heavy at the moment to progress to weight bearing impact exercise.
One of the best training regimes that we use is also listed here, it’s great as there are different plans for diferent levels of runner and also different amounts of training days in each week depending on time available. Usually a minium of 4 days a week is best.
