Hi everyone, I just wanted to see if anyone here is an endurance runner and what exercises are you doing on here to help you out with the runs? I'm currently running a marathon, my first, in February and trying to get more muscle building in because it has definitely helped me in my runs. I'm not a beginner runner but any extra help I will take! -- I'm also turning 30 tomorrow and I feel fabulous! Happy Birthday to all my fellow Scorpios! :-) #RockOn

Thank you John!! That definitely helps because I do have trouble maintaining proper oxygen, and staying at a constant pace. I will need to get some iron pills or something. I'm excited to run this as it has been a life long dream and goal of mine to do considering I come from a family of marathon runners, it's exciting!

Thank you so much! It sounds like you just burned your self out, sorry to hear that but know that it is very nice to hear you are running again! I can't imagine myself or my life without running. My dad will be running with me and he had been kind of my trainer, as he ran many san antonio marathons and some, so I will have that push during the race. I greatly appreciate your well wishes and I will keep in touch on how it goes! Thank you for the motivation and advice, it's been very helpful and...

I run Congrats on the training, your first finish line will give you a rush you've never experienced before so keep going hard!! Concentrate on quads (wall sits, deep squats) hamstrings(dead lifts with heavy dumbbell or bar) and calves(raises, jump rope, ski hops) and strengthen and lengthen your core and body with yoga x2 weekly The yoga is key to preventing injuries while your training runs get longer in distance and will help you focus your mind to drive towards your marathon goals! Beat of luck!
