WISE WORDS FROM THE Rick:
2011 MARATHON BEST WISHES!
Once again the one and only NYC Marathon is upon us. Best wishes to all. Remember to run a smart race and donít beat yourself. Listed are a few reminders for all.
1) Do your long runs in the shoes youíre planning to wear in the race. Itís better to wear a shoe with a little more support and padding than you would normally for a short race ( no racing flats).
2) Donít eat or drink anything that you donít usually have before the race; that includes the day and night before.
3) Get lots of sleep Friday night before the Sunday race. Itís sometimes hard to sleep Saturday night.
4) Sex before a race is fine, it may even help you to fall asleep (refer to items #2 & #3).
5) Your last long run should be no later than Oct 31st. If youíre not ready by then, another long run wonít help and may hurt. Go to the starting line healthy and rested, even if not in the best possible condition.
6) Pay attention to the weather, make a realistic assessment of your goal under said conditions. If itís hot, humid, and/or sunny, be smart and go out at a slower pace, hydrate before and all throughout the race; donít wait until youíre thirsty.
7) Run your own race. Donít try to make up for a slow start all at once; stick to your planned race pace and as you get to the later stages of the race, 20 miles or so, push it if you feel strong. Remember most of marathons are won and lost in the final 10k.
8) Be proud you run for the very best team in the area. If you wear your Warren Street singlet or shirt, people all along the course will cheer for you and tell you how well you and your teammates are doing. This will help if the going gets tough!
