Marathon Preparation Tips How to Prepare for A Marathon

By: Julee Mitchelsin

I love talking with people who are considering running a marathon. I think it is one of the best things that someone can do with their life and health. It is quite funny, however, to sit down with someone that is considering running a marathon to see what their plan of preparation is for their big run. Quite often people have no real plan for preparation.

People will find it very difficult to be ready to run a marathon with success if they haven't taken weeks or even months to adequately prepare for it. You see, running a marathon is no simple undertaking. Very few (if any) people could do absolutely no preparation and and still be successful in the just over twenty-six mile race. So I love the days when I get to sit down with a prospective marathoner and help them create a preparation plan that suits their needs and time frame while helping them adequately prepare for their big race.

I will share some basic tips for marathon preparation here. Keep in mind that these are only basic tips and that there is much more to be learned and understood before you sign up for the next race. First, I'd suggest that everyone who desires to run a marathon makes a time to talk with a trainer or a fitness coach that can help them along their way. I'll suggest that there is no better way to prepare for a marathon than to meet with someone that knows what they are talking about and get their suggestions. Another great tip for potential marathon runners is to get a few books and magazines and the topic and just begin to read all you can about it. See what you can learn from pieces of writing that have been written by experts on the subject. You see, in essence, both of my first tips are designed to get you to get help in the process of marathon preparation. You will be far more likely to succeed this way than if you go into it alone.

You may be surprised to learn that there are a large amount of training programs designed to help almost anyone get in shape to run a marathon. I'd suggest that you get your hands on a few of these schedules and then meet with your fitness advisor to see what is the best plan for you. One of the biggest ways that many people fail is not having a specific training program to stick to.

Regardless of when you plan to run a marathon, it is a great idea to get out their and begin running now. Even if you can only jog around your block, the point is to start running now. Slowly get your body used to running and you'll be much further ahead when it comes for the hard training weeks that precede a marathon. So get educated and then get moving. You'll be well on your way to enjoying the pleasure of a successful marathon run.
