Marathon Training Plan
Follow us on our weekly marathon training program
This week, allow your muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and organs to recover. You must understand that the strengthening processes happen while you are resting, not while you are working out. Keep your exercise to a minimum this week. Don’t cheat yourself out of valuable time to build strength and endurance!
By now, you have run a total of 39 miles. You will have had some good, some bad, and some in between days with running. This is normal. Follow the advice of your Yoga instructor: be aware of your bad days, but don’t judge yourself too harshly. If you have not already done so, start a training journal. Record the details of your training and how you feel before, during, and after working out. Take photos as well. This journal will help you keep track of your schedule. It will also help you beat discouragement and boredom when they come.
Come volunteer at the Pacific Northwest Marathon. Help cheer on hundreds of runners improving their life through running.
