Discover how to use one of your best assets - your mind - to greatest effect in your spring marathon
Each person is different and everyone has different marathon aims, but here’s a guide to how you could divide your race:
Miles 0-5/6: You’ll be quite excited and there’s going to be a lot of adrenaline, stress and a lot of buzz. Try not to go off too hard and hold back a bit (most people go off a bit hard and pay in the last six miles). Settle in and stick to the pace you planned.
Miles 6-11: Check how you’re feeling physically. Focus on your technique – run smoothly or lightly or find an aim that might help.
Miles 11-15: Think about your pace – are you on target? Do you need to adjust up or down? By this stage, you’ll have a good idea of how the body feels. It might be a case of continuing with what you’re doing or trying to up it a little or take it down a notch or two.
