·         From Brian Scobie Flyer for the EA Endurance workshop on the Marathon, to be held on 11 March at EIS Sheffield.  The workshop will look at the strategies for both Marathon race fuelling and a Nutritional strategy for the preparation training for Marathon and long distance events.  It will also look at the components of a Marathon training programme.  Nutrition and diet issues will be addressed by Louise Sutton of Leeds Met University.  Louise has experience and expertise gained from working on diest for elite and extreme sports performers across of wide range of different sports. From my  own experience of coaching elite marathon runners, I will try to address the preparation of a marathon athlete in terms of a programme that is constructed to secure economies both in terms of energy cost and efficiency of movement.
