In the daily hustle and bustle of life, one often forgets the need to maintain a healthy body through a balanced diet or any exercise. However, there have been rising alternatives like planned workouts at various gyms, cardio exercises like cycling and swimming and running marathons. It is now normal to hear ‘Run for a cause’, but the runners should ensure that they take precautionary cares to avoid any injury.
Here’s a minor checklist of items you will need in the run up to your next marathon:
A Health Check-Up: Prevention is always better than cure and so it goes well unsaid. You need to make sure you are physically, yet mentally fit to run the length of the marathon. Get a complete health check up done before you start preparing for a marathon
A Waist Bag Or A Running Backpack: It is a tedious task to handle a phone, a watch, a handkerchief, while you’re running, hence, it is advised that you carry either a waistline bag or a running backpack.
Mini Snacks: How often do you feel hungry when you’re exercising? Considering that the human body burns approximately 100 calories with every mile, it is only natural to think that we are bound to feel hungry midway. To tackle this, carry a few protein bars or glucose with you.
Water Is A Must: Running helps in sweating off fats from your body. At the same time you do lose a lot of water which flows out in the form of sweat. Hence, it is necessary to carry a bottle of water to quench your thirst and maintain your energy levels.
A Change Today Is A Change Tomorrow: It is always an added benefit to being readily prepared for upcoming challenges. The constant struggle in figuring out what the future holds for you is sometimes pleasing but at times scary. Preparation only helps make us more aware.
