This week, someone sent in a question . . .
And the question was: What do you wish you'd known before you ran your first marathon?
How long have you got? The first marathon is such a learning curve! But we talk a bit about:
- How the fatigue of training can trick you into thinking you are less prepared than you are
- Demystifying the bonk. It's something that scares a lot of people, but it's not really something that has to happen or that you can't get through.
- Why you probably need to step away from the internet
- Mental preparation
- The role of nutrition and why the last week is like cramming for a test.
