Pro Runner Jordan Hasay is Embracing Marathon Training

After winning collegiate national championships in the mile and 3,000-meters, Jordan Hasay spent the first few years of her professional career training for longer 5,000- and 10,000-meter races. Now the record-setting runner is shooting for an even greater distance race, embracing her new training and everything that comes with it.

Hasay is preparing for her first 26.2 mile race at the Boston Marathon in April by increasing her training mileage, getting stronger and adding even more BiPro to her diet.

“My coach and I will have a certain pace I will try to stick to, which will be determined as it gets closer to race day,” Hasay said. “Since it’s my first marathon, I just want to do my best and make the most of the opportunity.”

Depending on her workout schedule, Hasay runs up to 25 miles in a given day on top of strength training and stretching. She’s also incorporated more cross training work in the pool, all designed to make her stronger. That way, she’ll be able to hold up for all 26.2 miles.

Increased running mileage during marathon training has Hasay burning more calories than ever before. She routinely eats anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 healthy calories per day and has also upped her BiPro Whey Protein Isolate intake. BiPro is a perfect protein for runners because of its clean nutritional profile and zero grams of sugar. The protein helps Hasay’s muscles recover, so she can get stronger but still stay lean and be less sore in between workouts.

Since making the decision to focus on longer races than the 5,000 and 10,000 meters, Hasay has excelled. In her first race at the 10 mile distance in October, she won the national championship. Hasay ran her first half marathon three months later in 1:08:40, the 6th-fastest American mark of all time.

That success comes from Hasay’s years of training, paying attention to her diet and a strength boost with some help from BiPro.

“I’ve been running for a long time, so I have become very in tune with my body,” Hasay said. “If I feel tired or feel like I’m not recovering as well I add an extra serving of BiPro during the day. The extra protein helps to rebuild and heal my hardworking muscles!”
