Short episode summary

Many of our students, especially those training for marathons, are shocked to learn that we don’t think you should run more than 2 hours at a time. Find out why in this week’s episode.


Timestamps of big takeaways

[00:22] This week’s Tough Love Tuesday is a precursor to our upcoming episode about marathon training

[00:35] At RunRX we believe you shouldn’t be running more than 2 hours at a time while training because you break down your body in a two hour period

[01:30] If you attempt to run more than 2 hours, you risk injury - especially if you run more than once in a week for longer than 2 hours

[02:04] The work leading up to the marathon is what matters most on marathon day

[02:38] Trust in the training you’re doing with RunRX if you hope to run pain-free

[03:05] If you hit a wall in your marathon training or the day of the event, it’s likely mental, not physical

[04:00] Coach Caroline challenges you to think about what the restriction of not running more than 2 hours brings up for you and encourages you to trust the process.
