We will give you some tips so you dare compete at night and don’t run back of competences that we come this second semester.
We prepare to start a new season of important races in our country, some for more experienced runners and others that may be our first long distance. Ultra distances usually begin at night, which makes that we have to prepare the double or perhaps triple to live this new adventure. Night races have been very well received by running lovers, this is why transporthint recommends some competitions that may interest you and also some considerations that you must have before you begin.
Night racing is a good opportunity to run in a different way, because we get to test in an environment that is not in which tend to run on a regular basis. These are usually carried out in closed circuit, urban or even on the mountain.
Therefore, equip us we will have to take into account when some basic keys combined with our previous experience: this is what you should know before addressing a night race:
If you are going to run at night, try to train in the evening: It is a good idea to train under the same conditions of the race a few times to see how our body reacts. At night our senses do not respond similarly to full light of day, so it will be important to get used to these new sensations.
Specific equipment: It is important that you use clothing or reflective accessories to make you visible to other runners or vehicles that you can find on the road. Many of the garments often wear small reflective elements, or you can opt for bracelets to put your wrists and ankles.
How to dress: In the winter there to avoid the temptation of super warm. It is advisable to wear layers of clothing, in order to minimize sweat, so that body heat does not escape and to be able to dispense with any of them if we notice excessive heat. For trunk, a thermal t-shirt, sweatshirt or thin shirt and windbreaker and legs a few shims mesh long. Also wear gloves, thermal socks and neck sports.
Runs with heart rate monitor to control the rhythm of race: Running at night, as we have said, you can alter our perception of the environment, and we think that we are running faster than what we’re actually doing it. Taking control with a heart rate monitor or a career app not we will bring us surprises when you reach the goal.
Eat before running: As in any career, the nutrition and hydration before departure have a primordial role in our performance. We should eat as minimum about two hours before the game, so our body can make digestion properly. It must be high in carbohydrates and low in fat. In terms of hydration, recommended drinking around half a litre of water in the two hours before the race, and after drinking small SIPs to keep well hydrated.
Do need to wear a headlamp?: Although it is not mandatory, it is always recommended when we went out to run at night. Try to run a few days before the race with the front so you find a comfortable way to carry it.
