Whether you’re following a training plan, attending the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon or going for a casual run, try to define what you would like to target. The key is to target, not particularly to ‘achieve’. Because personal bests do not fall at every session, they take time to be built up. Some sessions are meant to be slow, others quick, others longer. They all serve a purpose. Start to define the time and distance you’d like to focus on. If you’re joining the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon then try visualization. This visualization phase puts you in the mood, prepares you mentally for what will happen.
Regular stretching will help improve your flexibility for the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon. Flexibility is the range of motion for joints, determined by how muscles, ligaments, and tendons move. The more you stretch, especially on a regular basis, the more flexible your muscles and connective tissues will become. If you attended the previous Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, you probably noticed that a lot of runners really take their time when it comes to stretching. Always remember that when first starting a stretching regimen, it’s common for muscles and joints to feel stiff with a limited range of motion.
This should seem obvious, but it needs repeating: avoid eating a big meal too close to the start of the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon. We have all heard about the importance of carb loading for runners, but a big plate of eggs benedict, even though it’s loaded with many necessary nutrients, is not going to feel so good sitting in your stomach. The day of the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon – we suggest that you keep your food choices simple and stick with lean protein and moderate carbohydrate content.
Dehydration will be your greatest enemy during the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon. Experts claim that runners should aim for 8-16 ounces of water, and consume it at least 30 minutes before leaving for your run. Days prior to the Mai Dubai City Half Marathon, try consuming 8-16 ounces of water and listen to your body. That way you can adjust the amount of water based on what you can handle, the weather and the amount of thirst you feel during and after a run.
Music is one of the best ways to stay motivated during a run – and research suggests it can also enhance your performance, too. A great technique you can use is to match your stride rate with the music’s Beats Per Minute (BPM) – so spend some time working on your playlist.
