Marathon Training Tips

Running a marathon is a major life goal for many people, but it takes precise planning and extensive training to succeed in the 26.2-mile-long race. Here are some training tips for marathon hopefuls:

  • Quit your job
  • Hire a personal trainer to make sure you’re training as expensively as possible
  • Make sure you have a pair of new, comfortable running clogs
  • Familiarize yourself with the course ahead of time so you’ll know how to direct ambulances to your location
  • Carbo-load with plenty of pasta the night before you consider entering a marathon
  • Try to run at least once before race day
  • Staying hydrated is important, so be sure to drink plenty of bodily fluids
  • Bear in mind that cramps are a signal you are about to die
  • Visualize your success and how good it will feel to accomplish something hundreds of other people will accomplish before you that day
  • Driving 26.2 miles is also an accomplishment of sorts
  • Be sure to check with your doctor whether you have any health problems that could give you any excuse whatsoever not to do this
