Running Training

I’m following a marathon training plan but occasional snowy and icy conditions are interfering with my training. I’m not keen on treadmill sessions so have you got any tips for how I can continue to train safely outdoors.

The winter weather can be particularly frustrating when you are following a training programme. The safest place to train outdoors when it’s snowy and icy outside is probably on grass (provided the snow isn’t too deep). Local sports pitches or parks are usually a good bet, although you may find yourself running numerous laps if you’re doing a long run. If grass isn’t an option then you can buy some special grips to place over your shoes (Yaktrax) which will help with extra traction on the roads.

I'm thinking of signing up for a marathon, but I'm not sure how much time it will take to train. I regularly run about 10-15k, so how long should I give myself before I sign up?

I've got my place in the London Marathon but we are going skiing on the 7th April for a week but I'm worried about training. How should I train during that week?
