我笑了又笑，但是5分钟后，我们已经选择了在海平面进行比赛。“Wow, you are easy” said she.
您可以’t really google “marathon”并获得不计其数的点击率以及有关如何训练的详细建议。我的女儿’s cross country coach, an elite 马拉松er, says he never reads that stuff about training plans, and when I asked his advice about my 马拉松 training, he said “Don’不用担心。赶紧跑。”
But how does one get ready for their first ultra 马拉松? How do you think about pacing? How many miles is enough? And why are you even considering this in the first place?
珍妮弗·海德曼 has been running for 30 years, racing every distance from the 400m 至 the 马拉松. Her next adventure will be tackling her first 50 mile ultramarathon. She is also a physician, a pianist and a mother of 2.9 teenagers. Find her at her personal running blog, 红杉与跑步.
似乎每天我都读到工作杀死我的另一个原因，男孩哦，男孩确实让我感到震惊。被引用最多的原因之一似乎是每天8小时坐在办公桌前对我们的身体来说很糟糕。在过去的几天里，出现了两个很棒的帖子来解决这个问题。首先是格雷格（Greg）的 黎明前亚军，谁可以帮助我们提出解决方案 使工作为跑步而工作。同样， DC瑜伽士‘s Katie gives us an 瑜伽入门，这是一种让血液流动并让身体在立方体中运动的好方法。
In my opinion, location is probably the most important thing 至 consider when picking your next 马拉松. The best place 至 start when considering a location is 通过 deciding if you 想 至 run a local race or a destination race.
Once you have decided on local vs. destination, look back into the options you still have. Do you 想 至 run an inner city 马拉松? A country 马拉松? One around a lake or up a mountain? Maybe even in another country?
您可以 find a 马拉松 in just about any location imaginable (even the 南极！），只需弄清楚哪种感觉适合您。
On the flip side, hundreds of small, grassroots 马拉松s are run each year. Instead of 30,000 runners, you can put your mental and physical strength up against 300 runners. They often aren’t nearly as competitive, offer plenty of comradely, and will give you that low stress, casual feel many runners long for.
All 马拉松s are not created equal. 比较 蓝岭马拉松，海拔超过7,000英尺 蒸汽镇马拉松 净落下955英尺是没有用的。它们的长度可能都为26.2英里，但是完成加工所需的精力却大不相同。
Every 马拉松 has their own distinct course profile, and you need 至 figure out what kind of profile will motivate you.
如果你想 有资格获得波士顿, set a new PR, or conquer the 马拉松 distance for the very first time, looking for a flat 马拉松 might be the way 至 go. If making the challenge as difficult as possible gets your mojo pumping, finding a mountain 马拉松 may be in your future.
Cost can be a major factor when choosing your next 马拉松.
The general rule of thumb is that the bigger the 马拉松 and the more corporate it is, the more expensive it is going 至 be. It is expensive 至 close off city streets for hours and hours, so look for a 马拉松 in the country or one that starts out of a small 至 wn 至 avoid high costs.
