Run More Two Marathons a Year, a Good Idea?

Run a marathon a test is harder (with permission of ultra-distance races) that a runner can cope. Although the hardest is not running “d-day” or making that effort have you been waiting for so long: the hardest is stay firm doing each one of your workouts during the months prior to the race.

Every Marathon requires a minimum of 12 weeks of specific preparation: three months in which care is the quality of training and nutrition to the maximum, which is a rather large load of kilometers and in which we prepare mentally and physically for the race.

Aside from some phenomena as Ricardo Abad, almost super men, who are capable of running 500 marathons in 500 days or 100 ironman in a year, the majority of runners opts for make one or two marathons per season. Is it good idea to move from this number?

Obviously, every body is different and It is not possible to give a definite answer in this issue: perhaps a person with a very good genetics, which has trained for a long time and that is capable of managing the effort to optimally two marathons a year fall you short. But talk about the common mortals: of those who suffer at least one little with each preparation.

We must not only take into account those three months of specific training for the test, but that we must not lose sight the time it takes for our body to recover after a marathon. Usually usually advertise a month of recovery (which does not have to mean a total rest, and may include other sporting activities or also soft career) in which both the body and mind can recover from the effort.

Each enternamiento and rest for the marathon cycle usually lasts four months, but maybe we need more time to evaluate our physical and mental state with a view to the next race

This would give a total of four months by Marathon, including the specific preparation and rest days. Casting accounts, We could run a three marathons a year. However, starting a new cycle of intense training only a month after completing a marathon can pass us invoice in the form of both mental and physical wear and tear: mental stress, ease to injure us, a possible muscle overload…

Most experts recommend take some time after the rest period post-maraton to assess how our body has responded before the effort and how we felt during those months of training: perhaps because of that most runners tend to opt for running two marathons a year, one in spring and one in autumn/winter.

It is normal that at the moment when we ended a marathon we are strong and in good form to point us to the next and begin to train almost immediately. However, respect the time of rest will give us better results in the long run.

Personally, this year I have scheduled the Madrid Marathon in the spring season (that will be my first marathon) and of Florence for winter, the next November. I think that they are spaced enough as to be able to recover well between them and to train to give it all in both. At the moment, with two per year and how many stockings I have more than enough: later, time will tell.

How many marathons less year you?
