Marathon Training Running for a Good Cause

Not long now before race day and although we are now tapering our training so that our body is ready for the day we still have a couple more weeks and runs left to physically & mentally prepare.

This weeks training is more of a guideline, it’s important now to do what you feel you need to do so that you’re as confident and prepared as possible. So, by all means if you want to cut a rest day and add a 10km run in – that’s fine. I would advise against running for anything longer than 1.5 hours. That doesn’t mean though that you can do less than the guideline! So no slacking!

A great way to motivate yourself is to run for a charity. Many races are now all fully subscribed but a lot still have charity places available. Picking a charity close to your heart is a great way to not only to give something back but also to motivate and push you when you struggle on race day.

Everyone struggles on race day; even seasoned runners will hit a wall at least once if not more (and if they say they don’t then they’re lying!). Having raised money for a charity however is an amazing reason not to quit and to push you on towards the finish line. Even if there’s only a few weeks left too race day it’s never to late to raise some money for a worthwhile cause.
