Strength Training For Marathon Season

by Neighborhood Trainers Finding a trainer is a personal choice

Anyone who has run a marathon, except for the first guy who did it back in Greece with the bad news, and anyone who has completed a marathon knows they are about more than running. For one thing, there’s the fantastic schedule. The one that means everything else takes second place.

Your best friend is being married and you’re second only to her. You’re looking forward to every damn minute of it. But the wedding is scheduled for 4:00 in the afternoon. So you have the chance to complete a 15 mile run before putting on the flouncy dress. Moreover, you can dance until midnight because tomorrow is a rest day.

But any of the good Yorktown personal trainers will tell you if you really want to get a PB in, you’re going to need to get in some strength training. And the reason is it will help you run your race faster because you have more power. It will also help you endure the race a lot better because you will have a strong core and additional muscles.

Personal Training New York City specializes in getting you to your goals, they will be able to construct a plan which is specific for you and is oriented to getting you to your goals. It is as if you have your own personal cheering section.

The thing with strength training is it’s not enough to run it alongside your running training. What you need is a program that will support your running goals and is going to help you toward achieving them.

Miles obviously take the first priority, and the strength training is worked in around the miles. The great news is your personal trainer knows how to pull the schedule together. You don’t have to think about how to do it because someone who knows how bodies work and recover is going to do it for you, and it will be the right thing for you to do. Let’s face it you have a hard enough time making sure you get your five runs in.

One of the amateur mistakes in the early days is not resting. You’re keen to run, you’re firing on emotion and endorphins and everything feels good. You resist the rest days. You sneak out and have a small run. A personal trainer will get you a rest and believe it, your muscles will thank your trainer.
