Race Day Preparation
With less than an week to race day, your body and mind maybe feeling tired. This is all normal and you are not alone. Below are a few tips to help you prepare for race day.
Let your legs and body recover from all the training you have been doing.
Some people advice not to do anything on the week leading up to the race but it’s better to do something like a short run or walk 2-3 times before race day.
Do stretching exercises or yoga to help release tightness and tension in your body.

Don’t water load the day before the race. Drink fluid regular throughout the week.
