The marathon is doing one thing for a very long period of time: running. For today’s workout, we did many things for short periods of time. I had a list of 30 unique different exercises, which we did for 45 seconds each and 5 seconds of rest in between each. There were no repeats. Every ten exercises, we did something for a break – guardian run, sprints, butt kickers etc.
My wife ran the marathon yesterday, and before she started, my kids asked me if she was going to win. I told them that she probably won’t win, but that’s not really the point. I would guess 99.9% of people running the marathon do no expect to have any chance of actually winning, so for most people, it’s not really a competition in the traditional sense. Many people do it to improve and push themselves – it’s introspective and not focusing on what everyone else is doing. Encourage everyone to focus on improving and focusing on himself – don’t look left or right – look at yourself and push forward.
