Factors to consider before Training for a Marathon

It is wise to consider the below-mentioned factors before you start your training, as these parameters will affect the time you need for preparation.

Your fitness level:

For someone already into running, a few hour-long runs can be the ideal warm-up you need before starting training for longer runs. But a beginner will have to build up stamina, fitness, & endurance levels over a period of time.

Your susceptibility to getting injured :

If you are dealing with any issues in your joints, ankles, or any prevailing health condition, it is always wise to consult a doctor before you start your training sessions. It is crucial to listen to your body first and be extremely careful before taking up a challenge that might take a toll on your health.

Your daily routine :

Will you be able to squeeze in training time in your daily routine? You could either be working or studying, but training for a marathon requires commitment every day. You have to give your body that time to build stamina and adapt to running for longer durations.

Most importantly, do not rush into getting perfect right from day one. Over-exerting can also lead to muscle damage. Instead, ensure your muscles get enough recovery time between training sessions. Stay consistent in your efforts, and you will definitely rock in your first marathon run.
