Getting Down To Basics with Exercises

The Best Workout for Marathon Running Knowing how to run at the correct pace is perhaps the most critical part of a successful marathon. Never run too fast at the start because soon you will hit the wall and you will be too tired to make it to the finish line. 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. So you have to start somewhere in the middle of these two extremes, the perfect pace. One of the best marathon running tips is the 80 x 100 training workout. In this method you will be able to evaluate your overall running fitness and determine the optimum marathon pace for you to run at. You can find out how good you can be if you try this workout. Let us say that you think you can run a 3 hour and 45 minute marathon. 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. This is not difficult at all.
Getting To The Point – Exercises
If you have a goal of running a marathon 4 hours, then your workout should be 800 meter repeats at 4 minutes and rest 4 minutes in between. The same holds true for whatever marathon time you are aiming at and it is not a difficult workout.
Doing Resources The Right Way
If you don’t know what the right pace is to start at, then just take your best guess and start there. You should slow down and try again if you find yourself unable to keep the pace for ten intervals. You can increase your time if you are able to still have energy after doing it ten times. Look for the best pace by experimenting and checking what you can consistently maintain for ten intervals. With this new marathon pace you can be satisfied that you will run your best. 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.
