Four Marathon Training Tips

  1. Don’t stand when you can sit and don’t sit when you can lie down. Protect your feet. Conserve your legs’ strength. Also, have 2-3 pairs of shoes and rotate them throughout the week.
  2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
  3. Sleep, sleep, sleep.
  4. Start with an average of 21 miles per week and build up to 50 miles per week (if you want to run a sub 4:00 marathon) or 70 miles (if you want to run a sub 3:30 marathon) or 100 miles (if you want to run a sub 3:00 marathon). You need three months to train and be ready for a marathon race. Three months. Start with 3 miles per day and build up to 7-13 miles per day.
