It is difficult to perform at your best if you have been sitting in a car for 6 hours prior to your race. Allow yourself enough time to before racing to go for a walk, stretch, foam roll… better yet (if it’s economically feasible) arrive a day or two beforehand to acclimatise.
Making sure you are eating and drinking the right things can have an enormous impact on your fatigue levels and injury susceptibility. Find out more here.
5. Seek professional advice
