Understanding what must be done
Whilst a marathon is a 26.2 mile run, there is more to it, from training, fundraising, dieting, travel and accommodation. There is a lot to think of to maximise your likelihood of success on the day.
When undertaking any work task, having a clear understanding of what needs to be done will help you achieve what is needed.
Planning and preparation
You have to be well prepared for long distance runs. Whilst I am not a fan of the generic plans that are out there (on the basis that every individual is different), you simply have to get comfortable and conditioned with running that distance. That will take time and a reasonable amount of perseverance.
In everyone’s busy and varied work life, where you have to get the most out of your working day, planning your time, tasks and being well prepared is becoming ever more important.
