Your Marathon Race-Day Strategy.

Your Marathon Race-Day Strategy.

To ensure that your body is ready to put your pacing strategy into action – and for the hours of hard running during the marathon – always warm up. By jogging for about 10 – 15 minutes, you allow your body to break into a sweat. So, don't neglect this. “Dynamic warm-ups (exercises that mimic running) after jogging are the most ideal to facilitate blood flow to joints and muscles,” says Jonathan Fong, director of Racers’ Toolbox . A good warm-up not only pumps blood into the nooks and crannies or your muscle fibres, priming them for activity, it also warms up your tendons. "This heat makes you more pliable, so you'll perform better and decrease your risk of injury," says Dr Nicholas DiNubile, a clinical assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania in the US.
