Training for a Marathon or Other Long Race

As a new runner, you should set reasonable objectives for yourself. A 10k marathon is not something you can train for in a few weeks

The walk-run strategy might help new runners ease into a regular running schedule. You need only break up your workout into intervals of running and walking. 

For first-time runners, completing a 5K is an achievable objective. If this is your first race of this type, you should give yourself at least seven weeks to train for it.

Long distance running requires cooperation between the cardiovascular and muscular systems. Therefore, strength training can be an essential part of extending your running range.

A healthy diet is essential to running. Getting the proper vitamins and nutrients will go a long way toward helping you run further.

To keep your energy up during a long run, eat a modest snack of carbs and protein 15 to 60 minutes beforehand.  

There is always room to improve your running distance, whether you're a novice or a seasoned runner. Set reasonable goals and timetables to achieve them in manageable chunks
