101 Tips for Completing Your First Marathon

Tip #5
Regarding frequency, be consistent each week. Whether it be 3 days a week (perhaps with some added cycling) or 4 days a week being consistent will help build the endurance needed for that long marathon run.
Tip #6
Some speed work can be done each week or if you are older than 40 consider 1 speed day every 2 weeks. Interval training develops speed. This is running fast for a quarter mile followed by a slow jog. This type of training is usually started following 4 months of packing on the slow easy miles. However you don’t need it to complete your first marathon.
