The Tata Mumbai Marathon is around the corner (January 19th, 2020) and if you are preparing for it, there are a few foundational tips that any runner should always consider and regulate for the most efficient performance.

If you've ever run a marathon or any race, for that matter, you would know that there is a lot more to running than meets the eye. There is an art to running a marathon that demands training, planning, and skilled execution. Without following a formalized plan, your experience of running a marathon is sure to be relatively distressing as it will leave you sore, and you will likely never look forward to running a marathon again! So, what are the required checkboxes to fulfill before you begin to run a marathon? Let's outline the list of essentials you will need to ensure that you conquer the challenge ahead of you and deliver your very best.

A Foundational Guide To Preparing For The TMM 2020

  • Understand your capabilities: Running coaches suggest that you start off with 10–15 miles (16–24 km) a week before you think of training for a half marathon. If you're new to running, make sure you gradually build up the endurance required to amass this mileage.
  • Map out a training plan: Having a detailed schedule in place helps track progress and conditions the body to be fully prepared for the race beforehand. If this is your first time running a marathon of any kind, pace your training so that you make sure your goals are aimed at completing the race, and not solely and blindly trying to win it.
  • Stay Hydrated: Ensuring you always maintain your electrolyte balance will prevent cramps, exhaustion and boost performance in ways you will not even consciously comprehend. Informed choice certified energy drinks like these electrolyte effervescent tablets can fuel your run by replacing all the electrolytes you lose during a run.

  • Make sure you get adequate rest: Ensuring you get ample time for rest provides time for the body to recuperate and regenerate muscles from wear and tear. Over-exhaustion results from inadequate rest after intense physical exertion. So make sure you don't burn yourself out during training or on race day! One way, you can ensure speedy recovery is through these muscle recovery supplements.
