Marathon preparation: getting to the start line fit and injury free
Running 42.2km is no easy feat. You may be able to get away with suboptimal training prior to a shorter 5km or 10km race, but with the marathon there is no hiding. With less than 10 weeks until the Gold Coast Marathon, preparation is key to get to the start line fit and healthy. Here are my top 4 preparation tips that will help you avoid injury and enjoy training in the lead up to the race:
Fuelling your Run with an Endurance Fuel
Whether you are an experienced marathoner or a beginner, getting your nutrition right for the Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon can be very tricky. The easiest way to consume all these elements is to drink a pre-mixed endurance fuel like Fixx Nutrition Fuel X. With the right blend of electrolytes and the right quantity and type of carbohydrates, this liquid endurance fuel will also keep you energised and well hydrated.
Does fatigue, lactic acid buildup, gut issues & cramps impact your running performance?
Fatigue, lactic acid buildup and blood sugar regulation can have a dramatic effect on your running performance. Of course, the amount and type of training you do may go a long way to improve all of these issues but, consuming good sports nutrition which contains specific amino acids can also make a big difference.
