How I Train For A Marathon


So with less than two weeks to go until I run 26.2 miles (breaking a sweat just writing this) I wanted to share my training tips and advice on running a marathon. Maybe your goal isn’t to run a marathon (yet!) and you just want to get back into running and generally improving your fitness, well then, this video is also for you. Tying up those shoe laces and heading out your front door doesn’t require an expensive gym membership nor does it require a high level of skill (Take Phoebe from Friends or Forrest Gump for example) Just get out there, set your goals and stick to them!  Below you can find the recipe to my healthy and delicious Acai bowl, which is great pre/post work-out!

Let me know in the comments below what your goals are and what training your doing. Tweet @emmamilleruk with any of your training pictures or Acai bowl creations using #EMglow and I will be retweeting.
