Here is a great statement that I'd like to highlight from Coach Jenny:
Marathon training is 90% physical and 10% mental. Race day is 90% mental and 10% physical.
This is such a great statement and so valid. Here are good reads of this time:
- Your Postrun Hour of Power - The instant you end a workout, the clock starts ticking: You have 60 minutes to properly refuel. Here's how to do it right.
- Get Your Carbs Here - There are more ways than ever to fuel up on the run. Time for a user's guide to drinks, gels, bars, and nature's own sports food. Summarizes the pros and cons of each one of them at the last page of article.
- Why 20 miles ? - Coach Jenny explains why the longest run in Marathon training should be no longer than 20-21 miles.
