As a general rule, beginner runners should give themselves at least 5-6 months to train for a full marathon. After all, you want to finish your race strong and injury-free. Obviously, you’ll need a running schedule of three to five times a week during this time, increasing your weekly volume as you get closer to race day.

Having a good training plan when you’re preparing for a marathon is essential to get the most out of the race day in terms of enjoyment and your sense of achievement.  It may take some time to get used to running for an extended period of time and training can help you find and get comfortable with your running style. It also improves your cardiovascular health so that your heart and lungs can keep up with your legs on race day.  It also fortifies your mental stamina while building your physical endurance.

You may want to consider hiring a personal trainer during your prep season.  As a coach, they can help you approach your goal in a safe and effective way.  They’ll keep you accountable and work in the right mix of cross training, recovery, and motivation!

Staying hydrated is very crucial especially during summer as it ensures that your body keeps functioning normally. Sweating reduces your energy levels and can cause an electrolyte imbalance. Caffeinated, carbonated and alcoholic beverages, are all diuretics that can lead to dehydration. Instead try drinking lemon juice, coconut water, or fresh fruit juices to replenish!

Another alternative is fruit infused water.  Be sure to use organic fruit so it is free from pesticides and chemicals.  

Here’s some fun combination ideas:

🍓Strawberries with Lemon & Mint Leaves

🍋 Lemon & Cucumber 

🌱 Mint Leaves with Raspberry & Lime

🍉 Watermelon & Kiwi

🍏 Apple, Cinnamon Stick & Red Pear

🍊 Orange, Cranberry & Blueberry

Using resistance bands for strength training allows for isolation of targeted muscle groups while using a full range of motion.  Since you need to brace your core for stability during use, it’s also a fantastic workout for core muscles!

The trick is finding the right level of resistance and the clue is in the color:

Yellow - Very Light
Green - Light
Red  - Medium
Blue - Heavy

Start with a band that feels slightly challenging and graduate to the next color whenever that band starts to feel easy.

Balance is an often neglected yet important key to functional training and ideally should be incorporated into your daily routine.  This can help prevent falls and increase body awareness, coordination, and joint stability.

Here’s 3 exercises you can try along with ways to continue to challenge yourself!

* Using the back of a chair to hold your hands, stand with your weight on one leg.  Raise the other knee and lift your hands from the chair and hold to position for 30 seconds.  Increase the intensity by increasing the time or by trying to hold the lifted leg to the side or behind you.

* Walk heel to toe, like walking a tightrope for 15 steps.  Steady yourself with a wall if you need a little extra support. Increase the intensity by rotating your head from side to side as you walk.

* Try standing up and sitting down from a chair without using your hands—but remember your hands are there if you need them! Increase the intensity by performing it with your eyes closed.

How many racquetball players does it take to take out a light bulb?… 
“What do you mean it was out, it was in!!!”

Providing a total-body workout, Racquetball is a great calorie burner that gets you both aerobic and anaerobic exercise!  The endurance aspect of racquetball improves the body’s aerobic capacity, while the short bursts of quick sprints improve the anaerobic capacity. Check out these other benefits:

🔹 Using a wide range of motion requires balance, hand-eye coordination & flexibility that increases through practice.

🔹Considered a weight-bearing exercise, racquetball makes your bones and muscles stronger, while slowing bone loss.

🔹The quick pace and use of strategy improves reflexes and mental clarity.

Court sports are included in all Deluxe/Over 55 Memberships or a $5.00 drop in fee for all other memberships.
