- Don’t get swept up with the race mentality of running as fast as you can, stick to the pace you need to in order to finish strong and injury free.
- If you need to complete more miles than the race distance, try to complete them beforehand, and with as little time as possible between your run and your race so that your body doesn’t cool down too much.
- Use it as an opportunity to practice your goal race day routine, including pre-race breakfast, fuelling, hydrating and outfit.
Good luck to everyone running this weekend, I know a lot of you that are training for spring marathons are in the final few weeks of training. Have you used any races for training?
