Marathon Training Plan

Marathon Training Plan

Marathon training obviously includes lots of running time. It is important that you do not push your body too hard in the beginning, especially if you are a new runner. Limit your running to 3 or 4 days per week, with enough resting time in between. It’s essential that your body rests and recovers fully. Once you have developed a base, gradually increase the running time and distance. A 10 to 15% increase weekly is ideal for marathon training. It is mileage rather than speed that counts when running marathons. There is no point in over-exerting yourself and giving up midway.
