Q&A With Coach: Jason Fitzgerald Of Strength Running Shares His Top Marathon Training Tips

Q&A With Coach - Top Marathon Training Tips

Oh marathon training … For many runners it’s a love-hate relationship. On the one hand, you have a solid excuse to run (what many would consider) an absurd amount of miles on a weekly basis for anywhere from 16 to 20 full weeks and no one can call you crazy for it.

Mark: Last year after the NYC Marathon you didn’t want to run for like two months.

Me: Exactly!
