Running is an exercise that keeps our body alive and healthy. This exercise is already proven and tested by everybody who has done it. Young and old have already tried this exercise. And they have experienced the best results. They felt healthy and enthusiastic especially in their work. A 45-year old single woman is suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes because of her weight. For the past decade of her life eating was her habit and without her favorite food, her day is in a bad start thus she always experienced dizziness and she felt like vomiting. Until her friend encouraged her to register in a marathon. Of course she hesitated because of her condition. She is 45 already and cannot run in a far or long distance to add her weight. But her friend is so insistent that she agreed to join. She registers in 3k. At first she always took a break from running to walking but even though she was sweating a lot and she felt like dying, she still continued the race. After that incident she always joined marathons and started to have a running regime everyday. But with an age like hers sometimes she experienced problems in a marathon. It is because she forgot something before joining in. Here are the marathon tips for you to avoid accidents on the field.
1. Always Carry Your Water
As you run, all your muscles are being exercised thus it is very obvious that you will sweat furiously so to avoid dehydration always carry water with you. This will save you from collapsing because of dehydration. A young man, who join a marathon do not bring anything with him except that he is properly groomed. It is because he expects that he can finish the race before he felt thirty. But the expectation did not happen. He feels thirsty and collapse before finishing the race. This shows that even you are well built and young, you must drink water especially if you are into running. It is because your body needs to refuel the water that you loss while running. Water will replenish the water that you loss at the same time it will give you energy to go on with the race.
2. Wear Appropriate Attire
Your comfort is very important on the road. Being comfortable will not only makes your body at ease also, it will give you a positive energy in completing the distance that you enrolled with. Wear proper shoes. Putting a good quality shoes is one factor why you don’t experience leg cram. Marathoners choose quality shoes because they know that having good shoes will give them inertia and speed in running. Thus you must also choose one of them. Although you are not planning to compete or win the race you must secure your safety always. Wear jugging pants or shorts at the marathon. With this outfit you can easily sweat and move. Therefore you can freely run and finish the race. Wear also visor to protect your face from the heat of the sun.
3. Choose The Right Distance For You
If you feel that you cannot finish long distance running because of your condition do not force yourself. Joining a marathon without even trying the short distance race will force your muscles especially your legs. Hence you must try first the short one before stepping to the higher distance. This will show that you must practice yourself first so that you can have energy that can resist the heat and pressure. With the right distance you can finish it without any hassle. But if you want to run for a longer one, do it if you already feel that your body is ready.
