How to Train for Your First Marathon

Is it your first time to run a marathon? No matter if it is just 5K or 10K you need to train before running your first marathon to avoid injury or complications.

Step 1
Establish a solid fitness base. From a recommended 15 to 20 miles a week, gradually build to a peak mileage range of 30 to 40 miles.

Step 2
Minimize the stress on your body by doing other sports, such as swimming or biking, especially after a long or hard run.

Step 3
Practice the hard/easy principle. Intersperse stress and rest by taking days off to recover and adapt to marathon training.

Definition:Marathon, Half-Marathon, Triathlon

The Marathon is a long-distance foot race with an official distance of 42.195 kilometers (26.22 miles). The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in 1896, though the distance did not become standardized until 1921. Half the distance of a marathon is called a Half-Marathon or a marathon with a distance of 21,097.5 meters (13.11 miles). A Triathlon is a multi-sport endurance event consisting of swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances.

Even though some events listed here are less than 42 kilometers (Just a 5K or 10K run), we’re still loosely defining it as a marathon event.
