You’ve done all of the training and the marathon is tomorrow! Very exciting — and probably a bit scary. Here are some tips to get you in shape the day and night before the big race:
Fueling and hydration
Hopefully you have been keeping track of your hydration and fueling the night before each of your long practice runs and determining what works the best. If you haven’t, here are some general guidelines:
Limit your activity. Unless you are an elite runner, you probably don’t want to run at all the day before. You should also limit any other physical activity.
Last step: relax and get ready for greatness!
