Today is going to be race weekend prep day! How do you prepare for your big day? Here's a few things I'll be doing to ensure I'm ready to go at the starting line:
How to Prepare for a Race
- Playlist - this is super important! I will be ensuring my little IPod Shuffle is fully charged and fully loaded with my favourite jams. There's nothing worse than heading out of the starting gate with your battery dead or trying to shuffle to your favourite song. Here's a couple new tunes I will be adding to the line up:
Taylor Swift - Shake it Off
Meghan Trainor - All About That Base
- Rest - absolutely! No running for me today. I may do a little yoga or go for a walk, but I'm confident my training has prepared me for tomorrow. The last thing I want to do is overdo it or injure myself the night before the race!
- Relax - I think this an definite must do. Whether is curling up with a book, meditating or taking a nap, giving yourself a mental & physical break will definitely help you tackle that starting line. Me? I'm taking a bubble bath tonight to enjoy a little R & R.
- Recharge - the last thing I will be focusing on today is recharging my body. There will be lots of hydrating and nutrient loading. That way I will be recharged and ready to go in the early morning without having to eat or drink copious amounts before heading the the race.
