Marathon

If you're working on your overall fitness with running and are looking to increase your stamina, pick up the speed. If you avoid lengthening your stride and rely instead on taking quicker short steps, your body will acclimate to harder training quicker. You'll be prepared for your next marathon in no time!

Marathons used to be for serious runners only, but now they have become a popular goal for casual runners as well. Many people nowadays come to a point in their lives where they feel they want the challenge of finishing a marathon. Luckily there are many good training programs now, to help casual runners prepare for more the 26.2 mile trek.

Training for a marathon can be no easy feat. Try setting small goals to achieve each week that eventually lead up to being able to run or walk a 5k marathon. For some, walking that distance takes little effort, but for others it can feel like climbing Mount Everest. Take small walks or runs each day and push yourself to make it further and further each week.

As you can see, a fitness routine doesn't need to be complicated. In fact, a simple and straightforward routine is the easiest to adhere to over a long period of time. These tips can help you make exercising regularly, a lifelong habit. Remember that motivating yourself to fitness is necessary to building a better quality of life!
