I invited Nick to share as much detail as possible about his marathon training, race strategy, and post-race recovery so you can understand how an elite marathoner tackles the race.

Just recent he posted on Instagram:

To run your best, you have to put in the work, know your body, and keep reminding yourself that you can do it. Train both your mind and body. 

And today, you'll hear what "the work" means to a professional marathoner.

You'll learn:

  • How many weeks Nick prepares for the marathon
  • Why his marathon training includes no cross-training
  • How he structures his taper and recovery after the race
  • His preferred marathon fuel
  • The types of long runs necessary to race 26.2 miles

This episode goes deep into marathon training - the nuts and bolts and nitty gritty details of how an elite marathoner trains and races 26.2 miles.

Note that our conversation is just an excerpt from the full interview available to Team Strength Running members.

I encourage you to learn more about the team here (we're opening soon!).
