Hello Everyone. It has been a little while so I wanted to give everyone an update on how my marathon training has been going. I also wanted to remind people that my instagram for it is @horatio_may_marathon
So I am on the build phase of running which means my mileage is going up. This is both exciting because I am conquering new height that I never saw myself reaching and scary because I am also running into the problem of leg pain. This is due to my poor shoes which I will be fixing soon. Sunday before I made it to 12 miles. I walked a little on the final uphill but besides that I am proud to say I finished strong even if now my knees are sore.
So some advice about running that I have learned between week one and five that newer people should be in the know about.
- Over ten miles make sure you have water, it will save your life.
- If you are running long distances make sure you get some kind of snack that will give you energy to keep moving.
- It is worth splurging on shoes if you are serious, your feet, calfs, knees, and hips will thank you.
- Running long distances can be hard so, find a running group that can support you across the finsih line.
Thank you everyone for the support and I hope to see your comments below.
