Running your own race and running a marathon is not something to be done lightly or without adequate preparation. The key to successful marathon training is consistently putting in enough weekly mileage to get your body accustomed to running for long periods of time. It requires training, seriousness and dedication. Preparing for a marathon, after all, is no easy thing. It is a big, big time commitment, and for most it demands vast amounts of energy — physical, mental and emotional. The pay-off, of course, is equally enormous. Enhanced strength, confidence and stoicism are the treasures reaped by all marathon athletes, whatever their ability.
Before diving straight into the training, ensure you read all material there is to enable you to get the most out of it. All marathon training programs have one thing in common: lots and lots of miles. The unchanging fact of the marathon is that your body has to be well prepared to endure the strain and relentless miles of the long road. You have to put the miles in the bank.
Here at SHAPE2RUN (S2R), we feel it’s a matter of degree. The plan is built to adapt to one’s experience level, but also uniquely flexible to each person’s needs. Schedule varies and so does the weather and how you feel, but here are a few things to keep in mind as we plan train to your needs. The overall weekly mileage of our 8-week schedule is fairly moderate. While the overall mileage might seem blustery, the twice-monthly beach runs are yes … long. Remember You’re in control of what you put into the program.
SHAPE2RUN (S2R) training programs are designed for runners of varying abilities as we believe that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all training program. While the schedules offered here are solid and dependable, feel free to fiddle with them to suit your own needs. Adapt them to your own rhythms. Speed and Endurance Runs are essential parts of the plan to maximize your training. Recovery days are used to break the Speed and Endurance Runs so as to avoid training on a back-to-back basis.
