 Let me wise you up with how to run a marathon

1. Train Your Mind

Running a marathon is not less than racing against you. But once you have decided on it, it’s less of a pain and more of fun. All you need is to train your mind for those challenges. And in these hours, what keeps you motivated is your own brain. Your legs might ache, the heart would pump loud and your breath will cry to you to stop and that’s when your brain needs a quote. You can run, you can run, you can run. 

2. Running Essentials

It's all in the shoes. For a successful running, you need a good pair of shoes that are tried and tested, ankle length lightweight socks to avoid blisters and your motivated quote to get going you. Avoid trying your new shoes because the feet might be uncomfortable with the newness.

3. Date The Track- Race Strategies

It’s not about running; it’s about the talk between your feet and the track. Get your feet talking by strategizing your race. Run the initial kilometres with a slow pace (don’t worry about the passing runners). Slightly increasing the speed when reached the middle point and finally running faster with each passing km and maintain it strong and fast till the end. 

4. Thirst For Success

While on the track, you will understand the meaning of throwing water on fire. That throat of yours is on fire and drying out of thirst. Instead of chugging on that bottle, sip by sip wet your mouth and keep the thirst for success.Gulping that water doesn’t do good because your body doesn’t actually absorb all of it. Most of it will run right through you. Sip by Sip thirst for success.

5. Pre- Marathon Diet

 Eat a healthy breakfast of 400-600 calories. The trick is to top off your energy stores without eating something that will feel heavy in your stomach. Some good options: Oatmeal or cold cereal with low-fat milk, or toast with peanut butter. Keep that bowel light so that you run high. 

6. Sleep is the best Meditation

Your body needs to store that energy so that it can vitally use it for the long run. You can do some final things to clear your mind: create an easy to-do list for the next day, set an alarm clock (or two!), and have running clothes laid out and ready for the morning run. 

 Pull up your socks and get those endorphins rush….
