Part I of our Tips For Your Marathon Home Stretch starts with Four Weeks to go:
Generally, a good place for your longest run
- Avoid running a marathon right before your marathon! Focus on time, not distance. We recommend going no longer than 2.5-3hrs. This run is all about time on your legs, not pace.
- Practice eating before and fueling during the run just as you plan to before and during the marathon
- Choose a course that is similar to your goal race course
