How to train for a Marathon
Presented by John Stanton
The distance and intensity of each days run or walk are defined in the charts. The Half marathon is a challenging, yet enjoyable distance. The training is somewhat less than a full marathon but still requires time and commitment – but the celebration of the finish line is well worth the effort. The training is great for burning fat awakening you mentally and physically.
Training schedules I have outlined for the marathon and half marathon will prepare you for your chosen event. Choose the schedule that best reflects your targeted finish time and distance. The marathon and half marathon are serious distances, you must take your training seriously – so stick to the programs. More is not necessarily better.
Over the next 18 weeks I will provide you plenty of practical advice in the areas of running form, motivation, nutrition, avoiding aches and pains and lots more. I will supply the plan, the motivation and inspiration it’s up to you to supply the perspiration.
My program is gentle enough to keep you highly motivated and injury free, but progressive in design to provide continual improvement in strength and speed. You can do it!
