Many people and runners want to finish marathon once in their lifetime. But how to start?

Recovery is an important part of your training program.

Having a break and recovering is not the same as missing a workout. Your body recovers, your cells regenerate, your muscles grow and your endurance increases. This is only possible in a recovery phase.

And hell no, if you only have breaks then you won’t achieve your training goals :).
