Marathon trainign

Postby lawyerdrew » February 7th, 2011, 8:19 pm


Decided to give this a whirl to train for a marathon....questions I have:

1) the link where we should be able to see author's results has no information
2) the stretching exercises are given, with no indication of timing or frequency
3) when author mentions preparing for a month or two before the part II, there is no detail other than vague discussions about what the actual regimen should be

Anyone who can enlighten, please do
=)

Drew,

What kind of base do you already have? The only foundation mentioned in the book was that "If you already can run a decent 10K" you have enough aerobic ability as a base.

I don't know what counts as "decent" but I imagine it's somewhere between Usain Bolt and Chris Farley.

See....thats my issue....I can run up to 6 miles, no big deal. But I still have a feeling that the stretching, etc would be valuable...and as fas as running prep prior to the 12 week program, all I saw that resembled a workout was "run 30 min x 3 a week on grass barefoot." Surely, he did more than that.

Drew,

I'd highly suggest taking a look at http://chirunning.com. I have the book, ebook, audio and DVD.

On Monday I begin their 20-week marathon training program and much of what's discussed is similar to the POSE running form that Tim writes about - although I'd say Chi Running has less potential join problems and is far more newbie friendly to self-learn.

Best wishes,

Martin

The trainer that Tim talks to is Brain Mckenzie, he runs CrossFit Endurance you can find more info here
http://www.crossfitendurance.com/
and here
http://www.iamunscared.com/
And his youtube channel here

If you can afford the $150 a month I would look into a local crossfit box and tell them your goal for training is a marathon. I just did a 1/2 marathon with only self training and it was easy for the first 11K but tough after that.

As a "runner" I found the section on running in the 4HB to be lacking. Someone mentioned Chi Running above, and I agree completely, the book and video was one of the first I read/watched two years ago when I started to run more frequently. I am so glad I did, I still use those techniques on just about every run I do.

Since, I have converted 100% to Vibram Five Fingers and added distance, as well as a ton of trail running.

One of the best sources that has kept me motivated and informed is a husband and wife team who have a wonderful podcast: http://marathontrainingacademy.com/
They have some very good training plans there one which I downloaded before they started charging. It is their beginner half marathon plan... You can see it here:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/91701442/Begi ... ining-Plan

Remaining injury free is easy. Just take it slow, don't increase your distance more than 10% from baseline each week and convince yourself that you are a runner. It took me a long time to feel like I could say that. But if you step out your door, you take a deep breath and enjoy those miles you are a runner. I know I am never going to look back!!
