Marathon Training Guide

Welcome...You have taken one of the first steps toward completing a marathon...looking for advice!

Heck, just join our Marathon 501 group and you will learn all this stuff, get personally coached and meet a bunch of new friends to train with!

There are 5 sections to our marathon training.

The Schedule will give you a look at either a half-marathon or a marathon schedule. Use one of these, or follow one of your own.
The Running section tells you all about form, injury prevention, speed work, stretching and more.
The Nutrition section will give you tips on what and how to eat when you're training for a marathon.
Get Motivated is just thattricks to get you out the door and running. Even if its a dark, cold, rainy night!
The Countdown is to be read in sections. Look at it 8, 6, 4, and 2 weeks before the marathon, then look back at it again the week before the big event!

We recently received an email from Maggie after she completed her first marathon, P.F. Chang's Rock 'n Roll Arizona. She used the tips from the countdown to help her complete her race.

"Hi Randy,
I wanted to thank you again for your website because it was very inspiring to me. I just ran the Rock 'n Roll Marathon in Phoenix. I finished in 3:55 and for a 45 year old female who had never ran one before I'm damn proud.
The night before the race I reread the pages about the last week of training from your site. I had copied them before leaving. I read them to my husband aloud before we fell asleep. The part about mind over matter was very important to me and in the last three miles I could easily relate to everything you said. At mile 22 some people started walking and it was tempting, but most of us just dug deeper and pushed on to the finish. In the last half mile I was so determined I took off my last shirt and ran in my bra. I though I was running really fast. It felt fast at the time. But my husband later told me I was limping a swift 9:25 pace. I don't care! It felt great to me. Boston's next!
Thanks again for your inspiring words
Maggie"

Good luck! You Can Do It!

Marathon & Half Marathon Training

From first hand experience I can tell you that training for the marathon takes tremendous dedication.

The time and energy does not come easy in today's busy life. Trying to fit in the miles often cuts into your time for sleep at a point when your body actually requires more.

To get in this training, you often have to hurry and even skip meals, during a time when your bodies nutritional requirements an all time high. To top it off, your family, friends and business associates will offer you about as much sympathy for your plight as if you had a hangover. And to think we have not even discussed the actual physical pain and exhaustion of the actual event! Can this in any way be worth the effort?

The answer is a resounding Yes!

Now I just hope I can explain it in words. You have heard that nothing good comes easy. No where is this more true than in mile 26 of a marathon. To understand the difficulty of running 26 miles is one thing but what is the good that comes from it? Once again from experience I can tell you the accomplishment of running a marathon will have life long effects. Putting a problem into perspective, studying possible solutions, overcoming obstacles and meeting your objectives are all part of marathon training. Your success in the marathon will carry over into your business and family life. The marathon is a crash lesson in time management. So often we are reactive and not proactive in life. The marathon helps us to attack life with a plan. Many of life's problems on the surface seem insurmountable, much like the idea of running continuously for 26.2 miles. To train for a marathon you need a plan. You research the subject, look to experts and devise that plan.

You are about to join a very elite group of successful people. The demographics of the marathon finisher are impressive. The average marathon runner is a business professional with a high level of education and income. These people do not make many poor decisions. They decided to run a marathon!

The marathon lifestyle is a healthy one. When training for the marathon, you naturally start living better. Knowing you have a long Sunday run planned keeps you out of trouble on Saturday night. Knowing you have a late afternoon run planned will assure you will avoid a high fat lunch. Unlike diets or promises, these lifestyle changes are easier because they're part of a commitment to a bigger picture. You are taking the first steps into what will be the adventure of a lifetime.

I am proud of you already!
