All you need to running and preparing for your first race in that case you’re in the right place here my top tips to make sure you get the best out of your first rice.
Think about distance
What distance are you going to be undertaking during your first rice? Is it a 5K? Is it 10K? does a typical kind of big in a race is the first ones you getting involved with and in a playful think about that distance very carefully have you undertaken that distance before have you run those of 5 cases have you launched that 10 K?
Distance previously all the legs up to it so think about the training you’ll get any today the keys on your mind what is that distance that you’re trying to achieve we’ll see the elevation of the rice likely you’re looking to apply today don’t get cold, so it’s elementary to apply for a race then perhaps realize so hang on its trials which are very hilly rice is also elevation so don’t be cool tell by that do your homework first before you apply for the rice find a training plan that it’s appropriate for that distance and stick to it make sure you got a few weeks to build yourself up to work towards it the new truly get the best out the rice pot runs a useful if elections do a 5 K.
The race they can best help you build up to that distance if you’re planning to do a 10 K. race, do check what types of terrain that you’re going to be expected to go about his across is track rivals so long don’t get cold so make sure you check the house to Walsall terrains that direct TV counselors useful.
What time do you want to realistically trying complete the race
Now you’ve got to be realistic 10K. what I always try to do is have some soul told push gold, so some are going to pushy if you give everything and then maybe about the gold price of things aren’t going quite so well during the rice saying some Pando, as usual, they were going to if you go for that push go.
You probably need to look to do some speed work. I can be doing a video not very saying once is that posted up and caught up with some of the screens if you’re going for that 10 K. distance, make sure you build about trying very slowly so you can get someone to push.
If you’re traveling to do race make sure you leave yourself enough time you can get to the rights of bent wherever it is being held and you don’t need to worry don’t need to stress so allow lots of extra time so do your homework prior to the event where is the event taking place of the ready road works of the running televisions, how’s the weather call some issues press service a trial based event things can happen when the rain it could hamper your ability to get to the event on talk check things like where you’re going to talk to search all posts been put aside for the event do you need to pay to park somewhere nearby to public car park leasing, so very important they can help to reduce that stress on the on the day of the rice so about minimizing it there’s potential problems so they on a problem for you you can then focus strictly on trying to achieve the best time you can turn your right.
make sure that the night before the fact to buy keep goalie PK with you your socks and shoes whatever running equipment you’re gonna need to make sure sold packs and ready you go some extra safety pay.
Understand what you’re going to be undertaking ready so when you do get to the price and you’ve checked in and you’ve got your number will that kind of thing try and find a quiet place somewhere at the event where you can sort of sit down you can take the time just to consider what you gonna do maybe you wish to switch some day right by one of our different T. shirts which are best placed tight kind of things turning pulls up a nice quiet place a bit of peace of mind you can just sit back.
Really important always to warm up before the start for example I tend to do round to file a mile off just slowly warming up just to elevate my heart rate a little bit re open up my my shoulders my lungs I’m just so I feel I’m ready and I can really hit the ground running all tend to want to take about fifteen minutes of stretching some range of motion type activities some work on my back in in the pulse of Michael about back.
During the race.
If you’re going to be at the start of the place that you envisaged going if you got yourself into the right area of the pack of runners there’s nothing worse than trying to overtake people if you’ll if you gauge the pack wrongly and you got to fall back so do take note of your place where possible if you go some sort of activity tracker watch or something.
You know enjoying it.
So make sure you do you stick with those places that you’ve been trying out you want to finish strongly in rice so make sure you stick to these places that you’ve been training at you don’t want to tie it towards the end you’re not going to enjoy your experience.
I like to use a kilometre medications my apple watch that helps me to make sure on the breach in nice places that I’ve been training or maybe for for 5K. You don’t really need to stop full Walter food or anything about the prep symbols or if you’ll if you will a big data and show slightly improving all time the first 5K. you don’t really need it first time kite typically they’ll have some more to stops along the way but again for ten tight you don’t really need any specific nutrition during the rice save ten
Finish of the race so as you come into that finish the home straight also but bring make sure you’ve given everything you’ve got you don’t want to finish that race and things will help fund cancer through the finish line that a key could shave a few seconds and then to get if this is your very first rice props about distance if it’s a 10K or 10K. it’s going to be your personal best really sorry.
Take some pictures pretty soon around in that feeling is a great feeling when you complete your very first rise so too number I I’m a loss to this video is to make sure you were fuel and you recover so take some time make sure you get some good nutrition make sure you drink enough water make sure you do perhaps undertake a warm down something along the lines of for a five K. for example I tend to do.
