GIVE YOURSELF enough TIME BEFORE THE MARATHON race starts.
Even if you hate getting out of bed before the crack of dawn, you don’t want to wake up too close to the start time of a marathon. eat, drink, get dressed, drive to the start, go to the bathroom, warm up, stretch, and mentally prepare yourself. So get up as early as you can, take your food on time, and wake yourself up!
Although you may be excited to wear some fancy new kicks in the marathon, one of the biggest mistakes you can make on race day is to wear brand new shoes. Even if your new shoes are the same type or brand of shoes you’ve been wearing, don’t wear them in the marathon race.
If you would have been wearing the same shoes for few months, you can buy new ones in preparation for the marathon, but buy them at least three to four weeks before the race and do practice for a week in them. Although running shoes are your most important item, don’t wear anything new in the marathon. Same goes for clothes — Including your shirt or jersey, shorts, socks, underwear, and a sports bra as well as anything you plan to put on in the marathon race. Practice wearing your clothes and gear well before the marathon starts, so that you get comfortable with everything.
Cotton is one of the cheapest fabrics, but it’s also the least breathable. It holds your sweat rather than allowing it to evaporate. Don’t wear any cotton at all in the marathon. Wear lightweight fabrics that don’t stick to your skin.
A few hours before any long run, eat a meal high in low Glycemiclcarbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fat to give your body all the nutrients it needs for the next few hours.
Most people have enough carbohydrate stored in their muscles and liver to last a little more than two hours of sustained activity. The best runners can, therefore, run the entire marathon without consuming any carbs because they take just over two hours to complete the race. Everyone else needs to consume carbs during the race to maintain blood sugar levels and delay the exhaustion of carbohydrate.
Water helps the flow of blood and oxygen to your muscles. If your body weight drops more than 2 to 3 percent during the race because of fluid loss, your pace slows down dramatically. Don’t let that happen. Start drinking early and often. Chocolate milk is a good mix of protein and carbs, or whizz up a smoothie with lots of fruit. Drink plenty of fluids too to replace water and electrolytes lost through sweat.
