About Winning a Marathon Medal

First, it is important to establish the distance you are going to run. If you are in good shape, then you may consider the full marathon distance of 42.195 kilometers. However, if you are not in good shape, then it may be better to consider a half-marathon. However, even the half-marathon is not easy to achieve. It is important to begin training for it so that you will be able to compete well.

People consider entering a marathon for many reasons; some people want to challenge themselves, some wish to become healthier, and others strive to win the marathon medals. These tips will help you, regardless of your reasons.

1. It is important to concentrate on practicing, instead of trying to achieve perfection. You can set a goal; however, it is important to inch closer to the goal every day. Start off training small, for only for fifteen minutes a day. Then, you can kick it up a notch, every other week. Similarly, you can focus on running a reachable distance when you are first starting out. From there, you can concentrate on improving.

2. Additionally, it is important to set a goal for yourself so that you can try to achieve it. You have to take into account your own physical standards, of course. It is also necessary to ensure that the goal you are setting for yourself is attainable within a certain timeframe. Then, you will surely be able to see the progress you are making.

3. A great way to track your progress is to use a training log. After every session, it is important to note what you did in the training log so that you can improve yourself. It is very easy to hit a plateau and not realize it; the training log will help you to recognize this trend.

4. If it is possible, you can enlist help from a professional coach. The professional coach will be able to help you achieve what you want. Many ex-marathon runners have started to coach the next generation of runners.
