Phoenix Marathon Training

September 27th, 2009 · 5 Comments · phoenix marathon

“What do you think about having a wingman for the entire marathon?”

And that’s how DTM committed to training with me for the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon in Phoenix, AZ on Sunday, January 17, 2010.

Fresh out of our second week of marathon training, we’re looking forward to a reprieve from the long distance runs as week three is a “rest” week and we’ll be cutting back on miles to let our legs heal.

Week three’s full schedule looks like this:

Monday – Rest
Tuesday – 3 miles
Wednesday – 4 miles
Thursday – 3 miles
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 5 miles
Sunday – Cross train (cycle or walk a bit)

Luckily, I’ve run a marathon before (Chicago 2007) so I have some knowledge on all the nuances of running a marathon… including how to stop your nipples from chaffing. That’s a big one. Especially when you run about 500 total miles over four months while you’re training to run 26.2 miles.

This is bromates first marathon and while he may lack the first-hand knowledge that I gained while finishing my first marathon in 92 degree heat in Chicago… he does not lack the intensity. That is for sure.

For all of you who might be running your first marathon or thinking about running your first marathon, be sure to check out these tips and tricks for marathon training:

    Oh just you wait… of course, you’ve already had a toenail fall of so I’d say you’re shaping up pretty good.
