In November of 2019, I ran my first marathon. Safe to say that it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. My whole body hurt while training, during, and after.
I tried to stay as close to this regime as possible, but it’s freaking hard and time-consuming as all hell. Although I ultimately will recommend that you should do this training as close to this document as possible, be understanding that sometimes it’s just not possible.
Here is a brief guide to help you train for a marathon. This is exactly what I used to train.
During the race, my legs somewhat gave out. The balls of my feet were hurting really bad and I had to stop a few things. With that said and careful analysis on my body, I noticed that I never got to the 20 mile mark in my training. I’d HIGHLY recommend that you AT LEAST gain the stamina to get to 20 miles.
On race day, the remaining 6.2 will be cake. 🙂 Good luck!
