Not really worth listening to - although at least it was short so didn’t waste much time. Too brief on the topics, sorry. A few searches online will get you more information.

Long distance running is much like any other fitness training. If you want to improve, you need a good plan that has a progressive nature. If you are new to this game, you need a solid foundation to build on. Having a running program is not the only thing that you need. Sound advice and running tips should be taken from someone who has "walked the walk", or in this case, "ran the run".

52 Marathons in 52 Weeks: How to Run a Marathon Every Week for a Year by Karl Gruber is the definitive guide on how to go about preparing yourself to run one 26.2 mile race - a marathon - for 52 straight weeks. Gruber himself successfully accomplished running 52 marathons in 52 weeks in 1996-1997. While it may seem that this topic represents a small niche of runners, the running of multiple marathons on a regular basis has seen massive growth and popularity in the past 20 years.

Having just finished the book - I felt I needed to warn others. Although there is now a review which sums it up perfectly. No depth no insights no help really - just a total waste of listening time.

In April 2008, Jon Faine and his son Jack closed the door on their Melbourne home and, leaving jobs, studies, family and friends, took six months and went overland to London in their trusty 4-wheel-drive. This intelligent and funny recount of the countries they visited, people they met, and trouble they got into, is also the story of a tender father-son relationship.
