What are you doing to get ready for the race?

Here are some tips on how to get prepared to the run

  • Run a Monday, Wednesday, Saturday or Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday schedule. This will allow for proper progression and ample rest in between.
  • A good pair of shoes is necessary. Good foot support is important.
  • Eat healthy carbohydrates (such as fruits, vegetables and whole grain cereals, pasta and grains) for high-octane fuel.
  • Be sure you always have a water bottle handy.
  • Eat protein (such as meat, fish or meat alternative) at most meals to help build and repair muscles.
  • Drink at least two cups of non-caffeinated fluid two hours before exercising; then drink six to 12 ounces every 15 minutes while exercising.
  • On race day, eat a snack about an hour before your run. Choose an easy-to-digest carbohydrate food such as a banana or cereal with skim milk. Avoid eating too much fibre (it can cause discomfort) and fat (it can take a long time to digest).
  • Warm up and cool down for at least five minutes by walking or jogging; stretch the large muscles in your lower body after running.
