Do’s & Don’ts of Marathon Training
Published on August 22, 2020

Maybe you’re starting to train for one of the many marathons that are held in spring and summer or even preparing for next year. Based on research and experience, what is the best way to train?



  • Keep your warm-up short. Save energy by just doing enough to loosen your muscles.
  • Run at an even pace. This way, you will still have energy at the end when everyone else is exhausted.



  • Don’t do anything new the week or two before race day. This is not the time for new shoes, new diet, new clothing or anything else that you haven’t trained with. It’s best to stick with something your body is familiar with and minimize the risks.
  • Don’t overdo the hills. Overrunning hills will tire you for the rest of the race.
