How to Prepare for Your First 100km Race | Adam Gant

  1. 1. HOW TO PREPARE For Your First 100 KM Race P R E S E N T E D B Y A D A M G A N T
  2. 2. THE FOLLOWING TIPS WILL HELP RUNNERS TO PREPARE FOR—AND SUCCEED IN—THEIR FIRST 100KM. As experienced runners can attest, one’s first 100km (about 62-mile) run is almost always one’s hardest run. Besides being physically fit, participants must be mentally fit; truth be told, it takes a very special human to travel 100km on foot.
  3. 3. EAT HEALTHY AND LIGHT A healthy, light diet is an important ingredient in achieving running success. One should absolutely not be emaciated or malnourished— these conditions are unhealthy, dangerous, and detrimental to running abilities. Don’t follow a crash diet, but be sure to eat healthy foods in moderation while training for a 100km.
  4. 4. MAKE A SCHEDULE Making and sticking to a schedule is a must for prospective marathon runners—even those who’ve been running since their youth. Try to run five or six days per week and increase the daily-run distance by about five percent each week. For instance, run 10km (about three miles) per day throughout the first week, six miles per day the second week, and so on. It should also be noted that it will prove beneficial to fit in a longer run each weekend.
  5. 5. ARRANGE A TRIAL RUN This tip is easier to follow if a runner has multiple months to prepare for a 100km. Arrange a trial run about one month out from the competition, and maintain a consistent pace while completing the entirety of the exercise. GPS devices are ideal for tracking distance and speed. If necessary, training can be adjusted based upon how tough or effortless this run proves to be.
  6. 6. Running a 100km is incredibly challenging—and incredibly rewarding. Remember that every journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. Between training and the race itself, this journey may be longer than 1000 miles, but the principle still applies!
