You Must Do These 5 Things Before You Run

Following a set of instructions each time you go for a jog keeps you safe and lowers your chance of injury. When you go jogging without being prepared, you may be more vulnerable to environmental dangers like severe weather or persons who pose a threat to your safety. Use a pre-jog checklist to guarantee a pleasant, successful, and incident-free workout.

By running , you grow muscle enzymes, capillaries that carry blood to muscles, and mitochondria, all of which improve aerobic capacity (which help power cells). Whether you're new to running or have been doing it for years, you probably want to fit as many runs as possible into your already hectic schedule. To fit that much-needed run into your life, you'll get up early, forego a social gathering, and maybe even push through some aches and pains.

Many people have their own pre-run rituals. However, being conscious before each training run can help you achieve your goals. When life becomes busy, runners often forget that each session has a purpose: to help us develop.


Eat at least 2 hours before the run. Keep it simple with a sports bar and a bowl of oats with dried fruit. Consume a high-energy, readily digested meal. Include hydration—water, sports drink if it's hot outside to replenish electrolytes, and coffee if that's part of your regular routine.


Warm up for the race around 25 minutes before the start. Begin with a 10-minute easy jog, then gradually increase your pace for the next five minutes. Then, at jog speed, incorporate up to five brief pick ups under 30 seconds. After your warm-up, gently stretch any stiff muscles.


The amount of water you drink before a workout should be proportional to the distance you'll be running, as well as the temperature and humidity of the environment you'll be in. It's difficult to say exactly how much water you should drink before a run, so pay attention to the elements in your plan and your body before diving in.


If you are running for an event, Pre-run nerves usually strike the night before the event, causing you to lose sleep. Or just waking up early for a run. When it comes to running, beginners and even veteran runners should accept that this is natural and will not affect their performance. Getting at least 6 hours of sleep can help with your running performance.

Have you planned the run?

Set your mind to something you've been intending to do before you go out and strive towards it, whether it's a new speed, a different route, a quicker time, or a greater distance. Run with intention. Setting a fair objective for yourself before a regular training run can help you move closer to your competition goals — or even your personal goals. Stay Safe - Wear comfortable clothes that allows you to jog freely, and keep the weather in mind while deciding what to wear. Overheating might occur if there are too many layers. Your running shoes should also fit well and provide adequate support for your feet. Before you go for your jog, plan your route; if feasible, select an area that you are acquainted with.
