Getting Ready For A Marathon

With all the attention on marathons as the training season for fall marathons approaches, it’s important to make sure you’re entirely prepared for the event. This is particularly true if you’re doing your first marathon.
Do your research if you’re planning to do a marathon. If you’re committed to the event, you will need to do the appropriate research to address the issues associated with completing this race. While I don’t want to scare you, this is a very physically demanding exercise on your body and you must be prepared to address the issues associated with heavy marathon training.

As I have mentioned in the past, “Marathon The Ultimate Training Guide” by Hal Higdon is a great reference for marathon training. “50/50 Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons In 50 Days and How You Too Can Achieve Super Endurance” by Dean Karnazes is another reference that will provide inspiration.

Christine Luff also offers another primer on issues to consider before taking on your first marathon at --.

With the holiday and some travel over the next several days, I may not be posting much until the middle of next week. Thanks for reading and have a great Fourth of July holiday!
