How to Prepare for Marathon Running

If you want to be successful in your marathon running, then you need to know how to run at the correct pace. If you start too fast, then you hit the wall and you will be lucky if you can finish the race. A slow start will still make you go through the finish line without much problems yet you will always be wondering when everything is over if you could have done better were you a little faster on the run. The perfect pace is somewhere in the middle of starting too fast and starting too slow.

One of the best marathon running tips is the 80 x 100 training workout. This method can be used to evaluate your overall running fitness and determine the optimum marathon pace for you to run at. This workout is good in order for you to find out how good you can be.

If you think you can run a marathon for 3 hours and 45 minutes then this is what you need to do. What you do is to try to run 800 meters on the track at 3 minutes and 45 seconds pace. After the time rest for an equal amount of time of 3 minutes and 45 seconds. It is important that you repeat this run-rest interval nine more times to complete ten cycles. Doing it is really easy.
How I Achieved Maximum Success with Marathons

IF you goal is a 4 hour marathon, then pace your 800 meter repeats at 4 minutes and rest for 4 minutes in between. The same holds true for whatever marathon time you are aiming at and it is not a difficult workout.

If you don’t know what you right pace is then start by making a good guess and begin from there. You should slow down and try again if you find yourself unable to keep the pace for ten intervals. If you feel that the pace was quite easy, you can increase it by ten seconds or so the next time.

You best pace is that which you can consistently maintain for all ten intervals, and you can find this by experimenting on your time. This will be your new marathon pace. Before running the marathon make sure you be consistent in your pace training until up to two weeks before the race. You can then run with confidence because you know that you will not hit the wall or finish only half as well as you could.

This technique works for marathon training but don’t try to determine your pace for the 5k with this. But you can still use the workout to do your base training for other distances, because it is a good workout for any distance race.
