It’s really important to build up slowly and follow a structured program.
Don’t start training for the marathon 2 months before. Give yourself the time you need to steadily meet your end goal.
Old trainers will have lost all their stability and shock absorption. Make sure you wear the correct trainers for your running type to ensure the correct support. Find the right pair of ASICS running shoes for you.
It’s a recipe for disaster and blisters! You’ll want to break them in a bit.
You can add some cross country and trails. Don’t run in the same direction all the time as the camber on the road will change your mechanics.
Build up to one long run as your schedule suggests and don’t try to do a marathon distance every week.
Don’t just do steady runs. Mix it up with different distances and speeds to get the best from your training.
A tired body won’t train well and is more likely to get injured.
Rest and ice for 24 hours, then start some easy stretching. If the pain doesn’t ease, don’t try and run through as it will turn into a serious injury that will need a lot more rest.
Not doing this means you won’t be recovered enough to perform optimally. Make sure your last long run is 3 weeks before the race.
