20 Things You Need to Do

1. Before the Run take a Bath

This is the Basic thing that Every Runner Should Do Before the Race, At the Beginning of the Day I Will Recommend You to Take a Bath. No Matter How Cold is the Climate, A Good Bath Won’t Harm You In any Way. While taking a Bath Clean Yourself Properly.

I would Recommend You to Listen to Your Favourite Track While Taking Shower. It will Surely Boast Confidence and Make You Feel Fresh.

At the Beginning of the Race You Will Definitely Feel More Confident.

After You Are Down with the Shower I Would Recommend You to Relax a Bit Through Meditation. Doing Meditation Will Not Only Clear Your Mind But Will Also Help You to Get into The Proper Mindset. Take a Deep Breath and Meditate For Around 10 -15 Minutes Top

3. Fuel Your Body

You Should Never Ignore a Meal Before Your Race. A meal is an Essential Fuel that Your Body will Utilize During the Run. I would Suggest You Consume Few Energy Bar it Will Provide You with Instantaneous Energy. Moreover, Take a Proper Meal in Order to Last Longer on the Track.

Motivate Yourself Before the Run. Tell Your Self Properly Why You Decided to Run and Explain Yourself Why You Have to Complete the Run No Matter What. If you Don’t Motivate Yourself Properly then Chances are You will Quite Before You Reach the Finish Line.

6. Make Sure to Grab an Energy Bar

No Matter Who You are Proper Amount of Energy is Crucial For You to Complete the Run and Win it. I would Recommend You to Grab an Energy bar and Have it to Avoid Feeling Weak During the Run.

7. Prepare Your Running Uniform

Most of The Newbies Commit this Mistake Quite Frankly Every Newbie Makes this Mistake. Night Before the Run You Get Yourself Ready But You Forget about the Clothing You are Gone Wear During the Run. It is Probably In Your Interest to Pack Everything and Gets Everything Ready the Night Before the Race.

So That in the Morning You Don’t Have to Find things To Get Ready.

8. Check Your Shoes

Make Sure To Check Your Shoes. Most of the Times People Don’t Get a New Pair. I will Recommend You to Get a Pair of New Shoes and the Use it For At least 10 Training Session Before Using it in the Actual Run. It Will Makes You Comfortable During the Run.

9. Don’t Waste Energy

Night Before the Race I Want You to Stay at Home. Avoid Going Out and Wasting Every Ounce of Energy. In Race, The Most Important thing is Crucial Usage of Energy. Just Don’t Party All Night Before the Race.

It Will Definitely Show it’s Color During the Race.

10. Avoid Alcohol

People Who Race Don’t Consume Alcohol Ever. But If You are Like One time, Just Avoid Alcohol a For At least 1 Week Before the Race. Moreover, Resist the Temptation For Alcohol Night Before the Race too.

The Last thing You Want is Consuming Alcohol Night Before the Race.

11. Don’t Smoke

Just Don’t Smoke a Week Before the Race and Do the Same Before the Race. The Winner is Not Made on the Racetrack. The Winner is Made During the Training Session.

Just Quit Smoking It’s For Your Own Good.

12. Get Hydrated

Make Sure to Hydrate Yourself Properly. Drinking an appropriate amount of Water is Crucial. Cause During the Race You will Lose a Lot Amount of Water. In My Opinion Drink At Least 200 ml of Water Before 1 Hour to Race.

13. Warm Yourself up

Depending Upon the Type of Race I Will Recommend You to Warm Yourself Up. Warming Yourself Up will Reduce the Chances of Injuries.

14. Avoid Stretching

Don’t Stretch Too Much Before the Race. Stretching Tears the Muscle Fibres. Moreover, Stretching Before the Race Will Result in Lowering of Your Performance.

If You are a Runner, I would Recommend You to Check on to Your Running Diary to Choose in Which Way You are Gone Run. If You are Beginner then I Would Recommend You to Use this Race as Experiment For Future Wins.

16. Don’t Try to Change Your Technique

I Know You Have a Technique Just Stick With it. Avoid Changing it at the Last Moment. Changing Your Technique At Last Moment Will Result in Lower Confidence.
