Discover how to use one of your best assets - your mind - to greatest effect in your spring marathon
Check your progress regularly depending on your aim. If you’re running the race to get round and enjoy the carnival atmosphere (especially at the VLM), check your watch every few miles. If you’re aiming for a specific time, it’s a good idea to check at every mile split to see if you’re hitting the right pace – or if you’ll need to adjust the target.
Consider writing on your hand what your mile splits should be, and what different splits mean for your overall time. For most of us, it just isn’t possible to do these computations in our heads when the pressure is on during the race.
There’s a difference between being focused on your target and being obsessed – there’s no need to keep checking your GPS or watch every 200m.
