If You Want to Run a Marathon, You Should Probably Train For It.

It’s true, training is a good idea if you are thinking of running a marathon. This is something that I have suspected for awhile, but now I have proof. From an Expert.

I saw this video on Runner’s World… It is a piece filmed just prior to the recent New York marathon

Feel free to watch the video for yourself, or just read my summary, below:

Dr Marc Siegel says:

  • Carbo loading does not work
  • 40 % of marathoners experience muscle cramps
  • Runners are more susceptible to stress fractures – particularly if you don’t train properly
  • You need to train for a marathon. You should start around 6 months before race day.

So there you go… Expert proof of what we have long suspected!
