Week 4: Barcelona Marathon Training

Last week marked the end of my 4-week microcycle training for the Barcelona Marathon on March 19th. It was a challenging but rewarding month, and I’m feeling good about my preparation for the upcoming race. This past week was particularly important because I had just run the half marathon in Cyprus the previous weekend, so I had to take it a little easier to allow for proper recovery.

Throughout the week, I made sure to focus on getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and fueling my body with nutritious foods. I also spent some time visualizing myself running the marathon and feeling strong and confident.

As I prepare for the Barcelona Marathon, I have a few tips and reminders that I’d like to share with fellow runners. First and foremost, make sure to stick to your training plan and don’t try to do too much too soon. It’s also important to pay attention to your body and adjust your training if needed.

Race day can be stressful, so it’s important to stay calm and focused. I like to break the race down into smaller parts and focus on each segment at a time. Remember to pace yourself and not to start too fast. Hydration and nutrition are also critical during the race, so make sure to drink plenty of fluids and fuel your body with energy gels or other snacks.

Finally, remember to enjoy the experience! Running a marathon is a significant accomplishment, and it’s important to take in the sights and sounds of the race and appreciate the hard work that went into getting there. I’m looking forward to the Barcelona Marathon and can’t wait to see what the day brings!
