Training for a race is a very exciting time that challenges you, but winning that race is even more exciting. Invest in a good pair of running shoes. Although it seems obvious, a good pair of shoes will help you on the run, while a bad pair will give you blisters and nip your determination in the bud. If you’re starting from scratch, don’t start running a lot or sprinting during your workouts. You need to get your lungs and the rest of your body used to the movements you are going to make. Start by training two to three times a week, mixing walking and running during the first training sessions. From there, you can start running for the duration of your run. Everyone is different and that’s why every workout is different. However, yours should consist of a long-distance run where you run at your own pace, interval exercises to build muscle strength, another type of sport (like biking, swimming, or weight training) and shorter strokes. While you are running with the other runners, you are actually in the midst of a battle with your mind. Part of you will tell you to quit halfway through the race. You really need to prepare your mind for the struggle ahead of you. First of all, you have to resist the urge to go as fast as possible, patience is a virtue, especially when running a marathon or half marathon.
- As you train, try to maintain the same pace even if you get tired, don’t be discouraged.
- When running longer distances, avoid slowing down for the last few miles, this will put you in good condition to not give up during the run, even if you are exhausted.
