It’s episode 1 and Dev and Sam are about to find out exactly how fit they are before they take on the challenge of turning themselves from beginner runner to marathon runner in 12 weeks. They meet up at a café to discuss all their hopes and fears before heading to the Sports Science lab at St Mary's University.
There they meet Paul Hough, a senior lecturer, who administers a VO2 max test which takes them right to their limit. The loser then has to hand over their phone in a very embarrassing forfeit.
Finally they meet coach Mark Draper who will be guiding them through this entire process. He talks them through their initial running training plan and gives them the low down on what to expect. There are also plenty of tips and tricks along the way for any novice or experienced runners listening.
