You've been training for months, and in two weeks the marathon will finally be here. Although you're excited and feel prepared, you also want to make sure you're fuelling your body with the right foods. Following a healthy eating plan prior to your race can help calm nerves and improve your performance.
Eat regular meals every few hours two weeks before your race. This is not only important for fuel , but it also prevents stomach-aches during your marathon. According to the organization, most runners have complained of gastrointestinal issues at one point or another in their career. Don't skip meals.
Don’t eat irritant agents as alcohol and take some pre and pro biotics till the race start.
Hints and tips:
- Regular and light meals
- Drink water and vegetables, fruit to maintain the correct hydration
- No alcohol and sauces
