TODAY’s Sheinelle Jones Reveals How She Prepares For Marathons

At the age of 45, TODAY morning show host Sheinelle Jones is proof that age isn’t a factor when it comes to getting into the form of your life. As she trains for her first-ever full marathon, Sheinelle has revealed exactly how she is preparing to tackle this momentous challenge.

When You Don’t Have Time, Make Time

Sheinelle explained that while she doesn’t have long to go until her marathon, she made sure to allocate enough time each day to physical fitness, making sure to immerse herself entirely in her regimen during each session. “When I go out for a run and when I’m training, that’s me time,” Sheinelle explained.

Swimming And Cross-Training

While running is of course key to marathon training, Sheinelle has also found swimming in cold water to be highly beneficial as a holistic workout. “I read all about the benefits of cold plunging. I don’t know if it really works, but I think it does. I’m not as sore as I thought I would be,” she revealed.

Remember The Reward

While training for a marathon is a long and grueling process, Sheinelle makes sure to remind herself of the benefits of what she is doing in order to keep herself motivated. “Training for a marathon is rewarding along the way,” she explained, admitting that “Some days I don’t feel like going for a run, but I never regret it when it’s over.”
