What the critics say
Episode reviews from Audible members:
"Great stuff! Really enjoying this series. A great accompaniment to marathon training! Light-hearted, great advice from a range of experts- thoroughly entertaining and such a great idea!" - Catherine Pollard
"A great training companion. Looking forward to the weekly episodes to help me with my training for the London Marathon. I know that motivation will be my biggest hurdle and I am so glad that this audible series has come out. George Lamb is a great host for the series and with hints and tips from the legend that is Mo Farah we will surely keep us going all the way to London. Just need to find the videos of Joes exercises now... Great stuff Audible!" - danny r davis
"Not sure I could train without it! This is such a helpful training diary. It's given me loads of great tips on diet, running shoes and training sessions to do. I'm training to do the marathon and have really struggled with motivation to get up and do my long runs - this has really helped with that and hearing George going through the same thing makes me feel less alone!" - S Plateau
"Great listen, can't wait for more. I like the idea of the 18 week diary to download once a week. I am a canicross runner and not intending to run a marathon but still loads of relevant and interesting content for me." - melanie
