Matthew Knight – B.S Exercise Science CSCS and Personal Trainer, Excel Fitness
For those of you that don’t know, I’m currently training for a marathon. As a personal trainer I have put clients through different marathon training programs, but as an actual participant I get to experience this first hand. Someone new to running might just think that the best way to train for a 26.2 mile run is simple, just run; when in fact there is so much more in preparation for this event.
Here are a few of the different workouts that I include in my program…
Long Runs Short Runs Pace Runs
Interval Training Hill Training Fartlek Training
Upper Lift Circuit Lower Lift Circuit Core Circuit
Other things to consider when creating your training program are frequency, duration, rest periods, and proper nutrition.
Entering yourself in a fitness event it is a great way to get in shape and maintain your exercise habits. By competing and setting a goal for myself it gives me the motivation to train harder.
As the summer is approaching maybe a fitness event like a 5k run/walk will give you the motivation to take your fitness to the next level…
