Runners need to have adequate sleep. If you sleep too little and you are likely to be in tiredness as well as be listless, lack of enthusiasm and colds. Sometimes, job duties and household chores, night TV programs and the daily arrangements of running sports all can make it hard for you to sleep for an adequate time. In this case, if you can do it, turn off the television for half an hour in advance, miraculous results will be brought to you.
Some scientific guiding principles have been discussed in last chapter, however, we have to know that some of them are just common knowledge for us. For example, do not eat anything before the few hours of running, if you eat something, you will start to feel it is physically heavy for you to run. This is because your digestive progress will consume you strength that you are going to use in running. It is not advisable to eat large lumps of food that is difficult to be digested prior to running. Although this kind of food can make you full, it does own the power to get strength that is desired to your body.
Comparing to proteins or carbohydrates, fat itself is harder to be digested, so fat should be eaten less. Do not eat too much fresh fruit and prunes, or when you do not want to interrupt our running, these things will chase you to stop running. Do not allow you to be a fat one, thin is necessary, this statement can be explained by the following two reasons. Firstly, it is likely for you to get to a better standard if you can run with a thin body. With lighter weight, you will run faster. Next, less fatigue will be put on the cartilage of your body, joints and muscles, given that you have a lighter body.
The reason can be known by us only through an easy calculation. There is a touchdown of sixteen hundred times on your two feet if one mile is ran by you. If you weigh at one hundred and seventy-seven pounds, the cumulative impact of landing will have a total of two hundred and eighty thousand pounds. But if you reduce the weight to one hundred and fifty pounds, the cumulative impact would be reduced to two hundred and forty thousand pounds, which is equal to reduce twenty tons weight per mile.
In a short time, it is easy for runners to see what places are likely to be cracked normally. There are body places, which are bound to chap easily, such as lips, nipples, hips, crotches and armpits. Before you start to run, if you want to prevent the crack to happen, you can apply Vaseline to these parts and it often works. Before you run for a marathon long distance running or a similar one, you had better stick your nipples with tapes. For this part will undergo friction, by doing so, miserable friction can be prevented. Say it incidentally, crack would like to happen in both summer and winter.
You need to listen to some suggestions on wearing clothes in a cold weather in winter, so Chapter twelve will bring you some ideas. Cold weather can not be taken as a problem if you can do something according to what we have mentioned before. However, because no matter how cold the weather is, your face is usually exposed to the air, when the wind is strong and cold, we must be realized that your face will be injured by cold. Vaseline can be applied to your face either. It is accessible for you to acquire some suggestion in the next chapter if precautions that you have taken can not make you get away from concerns.
