Many of our personal training clients have either completed (some in record time, have a look at Frances in our success stories page) or expressed a desire to complete one at some stage in the future. Contrary to popular belief nearly anyone who has a reasonable base of fitness, reasonably healthy knees and who has done the correct amount of training (three months is usually enough) can complete and even enjoy a marathon; many of our clients that we have trained for the big race have reported the greatest feeling of achievment they have ever felt.
So how about a marathon with a difference? Have a look at the Great Wall of China Marathon on the 21st of May 2011. The tough but inspiring race along the great wall includes a mere 5164 steps over the course. Hopefully the amazing sights along the way will be enough to distract you from the possible “stiffness and discomfort” (personal trainer speak for pain) along the way!
