Tomorrow is my long run so I figured I would let you all know what I do the night before a long run. I’m sure you’ve heard it all before – but for the one or two people that have been wondering how to prepare for a long run, you are welcome
1. Check the weather.
I like to check the weather first so I can figure out what I need to bring, wear & what time I should leave. Tomorrow’s weather looks perfect for an 8am run!
2. Lay out my clothes, fuel & shoes.
All.day.long. Water (& some Nuun, of course.)
Love my new white Pro Compression socks! Already had the pink & black – just tight enough without cutting off circulation! Official review to come
5. Charge your devices.
For me, that means my Garmin 305 & my iPod.
6. If you run with music, create a pump up playlist. I know I always get more excited for a run when I have an awesome playlist to listen to. Check out my previous playlists for some new tunes!
7. Eat some carbs!
In the mix:
1/2 pack TJ’s Soy Chorizo
1/2 diced onion
3 cloves garlic
1 can diced tomatoes with jalapeños
1/2 can corn
TJ’s Sesame Peanut dressing
Frank’s Red Hot
8. Set out coffee & something to eat before my run.
TJ’s Instant coffee
My homemade energy bar (normally I have a banana but…alas, none in the house).
9. Lay on the couch & relax!
With the pup…
While watching True Blood & SOA.
10. Get your beauty sleep!
I know Freck will
What do you do the night before a long run?!
