Marathon #2 !!! Lessons learned from the first!


Recommended Posts

Going to do it right this time. This will be my second marathon! I finished the first; however, I didn’t do as well as I would have liked.....and it was a miserable experience that burned me out on running for years afterwards.

Mistake 1: I overtrained...

Mistake 2: I tried to get cute during the race and strayed from my race/ nutrition plan.

Mistake 3: Tried to run FASTER too early.... Mistake!! I thought I was MEB Keflezighi!!!

Mistake 4: Ran for time on my first Marathon...instead of just focusing on finishing.

This time, I will enjoy the training process, follow the body/nutrition prep recommendations, and stick to my run/walk plan. I will not run for time.....just enjoyment!
