Marathon Training by Coach Shannon
Posted on 7/17/2022

We are at the halfway point in the training program for the Marine Corps Marathon scheduled for October 30, 2022!

You should have your first and second maintenance run under your belt for the week! Gear up for this weekend and your long run.

Remember that the long-run training is about miles, not time. So take it nice and easy as you are building up your miles. July is the hottest month, and many states are experiencing extreme heat. Don't forget to hydrate, and also to be testing out your supplements for event day on these training days!

Marathon Training is below:
Mon/Tues: 30~45 min run
Wed/Thurs: 30-45 min run
Long run:
To Finish Training: 16 miles
PR Time Finish: 20 miles

Good luck out there in your training!
