How to Train For a Marathon

Marathons are a lot of fun and can be very rewarding. You can have one in any sport you like, but marathons are most popular in running and triathlons. A marathon is 26.2 miles long and involves running it in under 4 hours or 3 hours and 15 minutes. The marathon is the longest distance run in the world. It is also the most popular distance run for men. Men will do anything to get a chance to run a marathon.

Running a marathon takes a lot of training. There are many different types of training that can help you to become a better runner. Running at least two times per week for 30 minutes each time is a good start. You should try to run at least one day per week at least 20 miles. This will allow your body to adjust to running. Once you have been doing this for a while, you can increase the mileage per week. After about six weeks of this, you should try to increase the amount of time you run per week.

You should also find out how fast you need to be running to maintain a certain pace. If you are not sure, you can use a watch with a stopwatch. You can also use a heart rate monitor. If you are not used to running, you may want to start out slow. Start out by running at a slower pace than you think you can keep up for a certain period of time. When you are able to maintain that pace for a certain amount of time, then you can gradually increase your speed.

Another way to train for a marathon is to start off by walking a lot. Walking is the best way to train for a marathon because you will not be putting as much stress on your legs as you would if you were running. You should walk for at least an hour every other day. This will help you to strengthen your leg muscles and prepare you for running. You should also wear comfortable shoes when you are walking. You should not wear tight shoes.

The last thing you need to do before you attempt a marathon is to rest your legs. You should take at least two days off from running and walking. You should also take a break from all strenuous activities for at least two days before you attempt to run a marathon. This will give your body time to recover from all of the training you have done.
