Training for a marathon is no easy task, making injury prevention key in order to remain at your best. With our 18-week training plan and our core-strengthening series, you can build the endurance needed for your first 26.2 miles. To prevent injury along the way, we have also created a prehab stretch and strengthening series, designed to keep you healthy and strong leading up to race day. Performed in this order, this combination of exercises will minimize the common running injuries that may occur during marathon training.
