#21 Things I Wish I’d Known Before I Ran My First Marathon

September 7, 2016

Podcast 21 - First Marathon

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.
