With less than one 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.
Avoid over doing it this week. Go for 2-3 short runs or cycles to loosen out your muscles for race day.
Do stretching exercises or yoga to help release tightness and tension in your body.

Hydration and Nutrition
Don’t water load the day before the race. Drink fluid regular throughout the week.
Focus on eating a healthy diet the week leading up to the event. Have a healthy balance of carbohydrates, protein and good fats. Limit your intake of sugar. Don’t try out new gels or supplements if you haven’t used them before.
