Marathon Running Is No Walk in the Park

If you thought you could run 26.2 miles with no training, think again. If you really want to do this, you need to prepare your body for the rigours of a marathon.

It should come as no shock that top long-distance runners like Paula Radcliffe run more than 120 miles every week.

Marathon running isn’t a walk in the park. The training formula might not be as simplistic as saying the more you do, the easier it will be, but it’s not far off. It should come as no shock that top long-distance runners like Paula Radcliffe run more than 120 miles every week.

Before you start thinking that’s what you need to do, keep in mind your goals: if you want to run under three hours, you’ll have to do a fair bit of training. But it’s all relative and also depending on your running and sporting history.

If you’re fit, healthy and prepared to work hard, you’ll reach your goal – and maybe surprise yourself.
