Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars…

Post-Marathon Blues?

Hmmm…no! Not for me.

I ran the Haspa Marathon Hamburg 2019, and I loved every bit of the preparation, run, and after race period.

Should you how however find yourself in the situation, Runner’s Word sketches out some strategies beating the post-marathon blues.

Enjoy 🖖

Wanna run a full marathon?

If you are a runner like me, and set a goal on running your first marathon you might be of need for a training plan.

Sure you may think, hey I know myself, feet are feet, I already ran half marathons, what’s the difference… a full marathon cannot be that more difficult. Hmm, believe me it is. It simply does not need some more training, it needs a great deal more and most important… it needs you to know you are doing the right thing even when you body talks back.

So… first you have to learn to distinguish ‘good pain’ (discomfort from leaving your comfort zone) from ‘bad pain’ (due to injury), then you need to ignore ‘good pain’, and use a plan on how to increase your training volume without overdoing it.

Here some training plans I found very useful.

PS: 3 weeks before my first full marathon…
