The 26.2 Collection: Go Hard
Marathon training means increased mileage, which can start to steal time from your strength work and warm-up time. It’s really easy to focus on the miles and even get a little mileage obsessed when ramping up, but that often leads to imbalance and risky compensations.
Marathoning isn’t just about the miles — it’s making the most of each stride, it’s maintaining strong posture for optimal breathing even in the later miles, it’s about running at your most efficient gear using the least amount of energy needed to hit your pace. To do those things effectively you need to strengthen key muscles to power your push off and keep your form on point, especially when you’re tired.
