Training for Nike Women's Marathon

Nike Master Trainer Marie Purvis

I don't think that dreams are ever achieved by a quick and easy road to the top. I personally have been working towards achieving my fitness and career dreams for a long time. I have had my successes and my setbacks. Most recently, my success in being able to train with Nike Women for the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco in October. I have been spending hours, days, even weeks, nearly 10,000 minutes training with the Nike Training Club app and it is paying off in a big way.

This week I get to talk with Nike Master Trainer Marie Purvis and get a personalized training plan for my upcoming trip to San Francisco for the Nike Women's Marathon. I am so excited, and nervous to talk to my biggest fitness and training inspiration. I know she will have great tips for achieving my PR in the marathon. What questions should I ask her when I get to talk to her? Do you guys have any training or marathon tips?

I definitely need tips on how much running to do each week and how quickly to increase my mileage. I have only run one other marathon and my training was not what I had hoped it would be. I am hoping to get some serious advice that will kick my training into #beastmode! I'll be sure to keep you posted on my training progress.
