Blog. RUNNERS WORLD CHALLENGE - WEEK 10. Greetings, runners! Here are some tips from the experts at the Runners World Challenge for the week ahead.
How do I balance recovery and training three weeks before a marathon?
Three weeks until the Philadelphia marathon and Ive gotten bad ITBS in my hip. From past experience with ITBS in my knee, I know that the longer to rest the better. I was thinking of resting it for a week, and then have two weeks to train. If I wait longer, I may run with a better hip, but less well trained in general. Any thoughts on how to use the next three weeks?
When I recommence training, where do I start? Where I left off, or ramp up 2,4,8,16,20? (Normally this would be too fast, but Ive only three weeks). I have done 26.1 a few times before the injury, so was in fine shape before the injury.
Finally, Im trying to use a foam roller to work it out. Is it supported to be agonizingly painful? Thanks for any and all help.
Answer: Bummer. don't pick up where you left off, first you are coming off an injury and second you would have lost a bit of conditioning. Fortunately you are going into a tapering period anyway so the drop in mileage and rest won't adversely effect your race. You've basically done the training. I just read a review of tapering studies that basically states maintain speed and frequency but drop to 75% of what you have been doing 3 weeks out, 50% 2 weeks out (the long run shuld not exceed 10 miles) and 25% the last week. Take the week off and then go to 50% mileage at the same pace thenext week and 25% the last week. I suspect your biggest issue might be losing confidence in your conditioning. I tend to think that anything that is agonizingly painful is my body trying to tell me something. Yo seem to have some experience with the problem. Have you used a foam roller before (successfully)? Good luck!

Id like to try the race in Philadelphia on September 20th, and the furthest distance that Ive gone is 8 miles. I did train hard and complete my first Olympic Triathlon last month, but havent done a thing since. Does finishing a tri automatically qualify me for running 13 miles, or am I being over-confident?

I am training for my first marathon....any prior fitness people have any advice?!?
I have been training for about a month now with proper diet and been comfortably running about a 12 minute pace for about 4 miles....I am looking to run the Philadelphia marathon in November of 2007...any suggestions or training advice?!
Answer: My friend trained for a half marathon and somehow injured his knee. He had trouble running short distances after that. I guess he trained too hard, and didn't include enough time for recuperation. My advice is: Stay motivated and follow your training regimen, but at the same time make sure to put in extra r&r if you sense your body needs it. My longest run was a 10K @ 7.48/mi. I actually prepared for the race by just doing the regular 3 miles. He trained by doing 10Ks but i still beat em by a few seconds.. hehe. maybe that's what motivated him to push the envelope :)

Cross Country vs Marathon Training?
I am a high school Cross Country runner and not too shabby of one at that. One day, I signed up for the Philadelphia marathon thinking that it would be fun but then I soon realized that there are specialized diets to run marathons as well as different training programs.
Basically my question is how does marathon training differ from the cross country training program or exactly how should one train for a marathon? What foods should I eat during training and before the marathon?
Answer: Basically the marathon is longer than a cross country race so you train running longer (and slower) than you would for cross country. You actually just need to increase your long run to 20 miles. Increase your weekly mileage by 10% a week by adding to your long run until it gets to 20 miles. You should have a 3 week taper (a scaling down of your distance) prior to the race so that you are rested. You have 9 weeks till the race so you should currently have a long run of 8 miles and add 2 miles each week. Marathon training program are typically 16 weeks so you are rushing it. Usually you increase your long run fo 2-3 week and then back off a bit to rest. This will also impact your cross country training negatively as you will be training for a race 8 times the distance you run in cross country which will leave you tired for the speedier cross country workouts. Finally, a word of caution. Atheletes that are still growing shouldn't run marathons. Part of your growing process is that the middle of your long bones, the femur (thigh bone) for example is soft in the middle (the epifisis), so you can keep on growing. As you stop growing it hardens. The pounding from the much longer training for a marathon can deform the epifisis, leaving you shorter than you would have been or bow-legged. As for your diet, it doesn't require changes during training, you are only doing more than you do now on one day. Prior to the race (the night before) many runners carbo-load by having a pasta dinner. Good luck!

Goal times for a 16 year old running first marathon?
Im signed up for the Philadelphia marathon in November and want to know what times I should be shooting for. Would 4:00 be a good time for someone my age? 17:17 is my best 5k time from last year during cross country season. I know it doesnt really help but I just wanted to throw something out there.
Answer: I'm 15 years old,I think a marathon is to far for a 16 year old to run,you should stick to the 5 or 10k,that's what you run in high school and college you have time when you get older.After cross country season you should get ready for indoor and out door track.Ask your coach if you run in other running events you could disqualify your self from your team,you need to now what events you can run outside your high school team.

Will they really stop me from using an iPod during the Philadelphia half marathon?
It says on the FAQ section of the website that anything with earphones is NOT allowed when running the marathon or half marathon. Has anyone ever run this race before? Will they actually stop me if I bring my ipod? I am running the half marathon in November and my music has always been a crucial aspect of my runs.
Answer: Lots of places say that they don't recommend you wear earphones just to make sure you are alert of your surroundings and people running around you. There's going to be too many people for them to actually stop you from bringing them. If you want, you can just hide them somewhere on your body when you enter the area. Hope that helps, Elaine http://www.truerunning.com

Considering running a Marathon? ?
I live in Philly and I am considering running the Philadelphia marathon in November and the ING Half-Marathon in September. I play soccer, and I just started practice last week...and the season lasts until the week before Thanksgiving. Do you think it would be smart to run a marathon? I have never run more than 10 miles before but I just want to be able to accomplish this. Im not big in running on my own time; I think it is boring...and I know that the marathon is going to be long and relentless and unmerciful to my body but I really just want to be able to say I did it.
Is this a dumb strategy? Do you suggest I do it? If so, what should I do to prepare for it? I am in pretty good shape as it is, I have a six pack and all but I just dont think I know what Im really in for.
I am a junior in high school if that makes any difference.
Answer: Preparing for a marathon is pretty much a full time job. If you are playing soccer I think the marathon training would interfere. You are young and the marathon may not be the best choice for you at this time. You have lots of time to put a marathon on your life achievements. In the past couple of years the Philly Marathon has offered a half-marathon option. Why not run the half? Your soccer conditioning will be compatible with a half. You will get the look and feel of a marathon. You will be running with the marathoners so you can get some feel for the course and how it is run. You can hang around and watch the finish and learn from those doing it. Then in a year or two you can fit a marathon into your schedule.
