The farther in advance you begin your training, the more time you will have to prepare for the race.

Fitness 19 has announced the release of its latest resource “How to Properly Train for a Marathon.” This guide covers how to properly train for a marathon by exploring training tips and actions to take in the week before a marathon.

According to Fitness 19, “The farther in advance you begin your training, the more time you will have to prepare for the race.” Building up mileage over time is ideal because it allows a person’s body to adjust, and a long run should be done once a week. Receiving the proper amount of rest is vital when training for a marathon, and runners should ensure their bodies are properly hydrated and nourished before beginning a run.

The week before a marathon should be about the last preparations before the event. Eating complex carbohydrates and drinking the amount of water to stay hydrated is key to a successful marathon. Runners should ensure they are properly dressed for the marathon course and race day weather. Race day is not the time to try new running shoes, gear, or apparel, and it’s important to do a check prior to race day to ensure everything needed is accounted for.
