Serious runners prepare for a race in great depth. So do beginners. Training sessions are ticked off and miles entered in the running diary.
But what about the big day itself? What do you eat?
Here are some suggestions from Nutrition High 5:
- Race Day Breakfast: Keep it light….cereals, toast and porridge are all good.
- 15 minutes before the start: 200 ml of water to start the hydration process
- During the race: one Energy Gel Plus sachet.
Don’t forget the Lincoln Half Marathon takes place on Sunday October 2nd.
