Marathon Training Program
At 26.2 miles, the Marathon is the ultimate road race. And the Marathon training journey is the ultimate running experience. For many runners, the desire to do a marathon is about personal challenges. You might want to test your limits or prove that you can go the distance. Perhaps a friend has talked you into it. You may want to lose weight, get healthier or raise awareness for a charity. And while running a marathon can be daunting, millions of people participate in marathon races worldwide each year. Getting to the start healthy, let alone crossing the finish line after 26.2, takes hard work, discipline, and planning.
Fleet Feet’s goal in marathon training is to get you physically and mentally ready to cover the distance, not just to the finish line, but to the finish line as best you can. Our Marathon Training Program is a 19-24 week program that uses run-only or run/walk training methods. It is designed to prepare runners for their first-ever endurance event or to help seasoned runners meet new performance goals. This program will educate on endurance training principles, run training discipline, mental skills training, hydration and nutrition, body awareness, pacing, and running autonomy.
It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you move. Whether you are new to marathon running or trying to improve your race performance, or just want to keep moving, our program will help you progress toward personal goals, wellness, and running success.
