Crossing the Finish Line
In speaking with a close friend today I was discussing the merit of crossing training versus just running a marathon. We were a little fuzzy on the details so I thought I would write a hub about each event and how to prepare for them. For some strange reason I am under the impression the triathlon requires the most rigorous training and produces the fittest of all athletes but I am certain there is a debate about this subject. This article seeks to describe the difference s between a marathon and duathlon and a triathlon.
A Marathon is 26 miles long and is no walk in the park.
Here is the link to the schedule to train for a Marathon.
