Fitness is the new trend this year. For once, we are confident that a trend is here to stay. Fitness is not about six-pack abs, a flat tummy or bulging biceps. It is about pushing yourself to new limits everyday in order to become even more stronger, not only the physically but the mentally as well. Health experts are encouraging people to start exercising, even if for 15 minutes. Working hard at the highest intensity you can put in for 20 minutes has the same or even more benefits than an hour-long cardio session, as new research has proven. If you are one of those people who welcomes challenges and strives to improve their fitness, a marathon might be just the thing for you.
There are many different types of marathons, each for a different cause or purpose. Marathons improve your fitness level like nothing else can. They require determination, discipline and hard work. They require you to work out and train regularly while eating right. People who have trained for marathons know that a single day’s slipup will make your training suffer the next day. This is why training for a marathon requires complete focus. Due to the fact that marathons are tough and as a result, they are not everyone’s cup of tea, the training for these races needs to start early.
One simply cannot run a marathon after training for a week. It requires training for at least two months to run even half a marathon. You can build your stamina gradually until you are able to complete half a marathon in one go. Once you are able to complete the distance of half a marathon in one go, during your training, you still need to be able to train the same distance for a week or more before you are ready to run a marathon.
If running a marathon seems like something you would be interested in, you better start training now in order to be prepared to run on the longest bridge in the world. This half marathon will be organized on the longest bridge in the world and as a result is an event that will be attended by people from all around the world.
The Second Penang Bridge half marathon 2015 is one of the longest marathons held in Malaysia. This is why it is also one of the must-attend events for fitness-conscious people. Participants will run on the longest bridge in Malaysia with a crowd of 30,000 other participants. There will be prizes and lucky draws as well as people who will be cheering from the sidelines.
The event will be held on 15th June 2015 this year and the registration will start from the month of March. If you are planning on being part of the event, make sure to register early before all the places are taken. Even if you are not interested in joining the marathon, be there to witness this incredible demonstration of strength and willpower by 30,000 people. Maybe you will get some motivation too!
