Marathon training plans

Posted

I'm training for the Bristol to Bath Marathon. I'm not massively experienced in the full 26.2 but did do the Bournmouth Marathon a couple of years ago. If I could offer one piece of advise, it would be. Get your miles up 30-50 miles a week and you will smash it. Add a mile or 2 to your weekly "long run" get as close to the full distance as you can. People say about peaking to early when training, I say that's rubbish. I'm 19 weeks from my marathon and I'm already up to 16 miles. I plan to get comfortable at 20 miles. It needs to be second nature to your body to get up and run 20+ miles for you to run a successful and enjoyable marathon. Or at least that's how I'm planning to do and it worked for me last time.

Why do so many running plans give you time to run rather than mileage in their plans. If you are a slow runner you won't cover sufficient miles to make a marthon less tiring if you go purely on time. Also the plans never tell you what total time for a marathon they are expecting you to achieve!!!

My brother is joining Ironman in the Philippines this year and I told him to use Marathon Guru's app for mobile use free magazine! play.google.com/.../details and itunes.apple.com/.../id767144576

So far, so good! Never a marathoner myself, I could only suggest what others say is good or quality! Check it yourself if you ever needed a free running magazine you can install in your mobile phone.
