Thank you A1! This is perfect! Now to find a high res of this.

Hydrate throughout the day and not just water but electrolytes are important too

Mix up your runs -speed play, hills, etc

Slowly increase weekly mileage

Foam roll & stretch often

Enjoy the journey, it is by far the most mentally & physically taxing thing I ever do but I learn so much about myself and it is such a self confidence booster. Good luck, you got this!!💪🏻👊🏻

Thank you for this amazing breakdown! I am looking forward to the journey! :) i was a rower and my father attended every race with me. We would strategize together how I could improve each week (wasn’t very good at 5 feet lol!). He passed away in February so running a marathon in his honor.

get a good consistent playlist that goes with your pace

Consider the run/walk method for your longer runs so as not to get burnt out or stop having fun!
