Less than 26 weeks til the 2017 Melbourne Marathon

" For curious reasons, we do care and it does matter. Twenty-six miles and 365 yards is not just a distance. it has become a metaphor. Nobody finds the marathon easy - even professionals, especially professionals. The distance is democratic that way. Everyone who runs a marathon is running against his or her limits. Everyone is forced to manage a certain amount of pain and to recruit hidden reserves. Whatever one's talent or preparation, nobody runs an easy marathon. Mutai's prayer at the start line is not to win, but to finish it. "
-  TWO HOURS, Ed Caesar

With only 26 weeks to go, and one thing is for sure;
Whilst there are no easy marathons, you can bet that the better prepared you are the better your race experience will be.
And so, the time is now to get your personalised program underway, and be well prepared for your Melbourne Marathon on Sunday October 15, 2017 !

It is often said that the hardest part of the marathon is getting through the training, getting to the start line. I couldn't agree more with that statement. That doesn't mean go easy in your training, quite the opposite. That means your training program and how you complete it is vital to your success. This is where many get it wrong, resulting in becoming a non finisher or even worse a non starter. It is very important you get this right from the start.

The objective of a good personalised program is; 

1. Get you to the start line in one piece. This means well prepared, with a race plan, and injury free.

2. Allow you to the finish the race well, elated, and more than a bit tired!

3. Meet your realistic goal race time or perhaps better it.

At Run Well, we can help you to have a successful marathon experience, whether it's you're a First Time  Marathoner, or you are training for a personal best.
