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

You’ll need some time

Current training knowledge says that you should plan at least a year to get into a regular training. At the end your training should include the length of a marathon per week. Building your body’s physics slowly and consistently will prevent you from injuries.

Begin with shorter races

Start with 10k or half marathons before running a marathon.

Main pillars of your training

  • Run 3-5 times per week
  • Interval workouts (speed workouts) will increase your speed and cardio
  • Do longer runs every 7-10 days, so you adjust your body to this stress
  • Recovery – only with rest your body will improve

Read a lot

You can either read a lot or hire a personal coach. As an alternative you can try out TriCoreTraining.

If you’re looking for an online training coach for your (half-) marathon training, then you’re at the right address. I trained for quite some time with a personal coach, but soon I had to change this because of the lake of money and time.

This online marathon training service called TriCoreTraining takes care about your available time and reacts on your time beside job and family.

Good luck for your next running race (marathon or half-marathon)!
