INC Unity Games - Running Tips for Beginners



INC Unity Games (Official Fanpage)

In preparation for the up coming INC Unity Games Fun Run tomorrow we asked a runner friend of ours Pamela "Pam" Petinez  how to prepare for a run.  She gamely answered back and give us tips that is surely handy:

1. Be prepared, dapat nakapag-train kayo kahit papaano. Mas mahirap pag walang training sa first timers. Pero kung wala talagang time for training, wag nio na lang po masyadong biglain ung pagtakbo, EASY RUN na lang po ang gawin nio (slow run after passing the starting line)
2. More or le...ss, dapat nakakain kayo (wag carbo, high-fiber, caffeine, and high fat food). Wag kayo tatakbo na walang laman ang tiyan nio, dahil di kayo makakatakbo ng maayos, nakakaubos ng energy and may tendency na sumakit ung tummy part. Wag masyado mabibigat na food. The best food to eat, BANANA, ENERGY CEREAL, YOGURT and HYDRATION DRINK like GATORADE or POWERADE or WATER.

‎3. Before running, WARM-UP EXERCISE is a must. Stretching, slow running before the race can make your heart rate raise and prepares you for more intense activity.
4. GUN START – starting time. DON’T FORGET to set your stopwatch or personal ...watch to get your PERSONAL RECORD (PR).
5. Always have WATER para po if ever na kinakapos na kayo ng energy or ma-dehydrate kayo ay meron kayo maiinom agad. Madaling ma-gain un sa pag-inom ng water or hydration drinks.
6. After finishing the race, HUWAG NA HUWAG KAYO PAHINGA AGAD or UMUPO agad dahil sa napagod kayo. Have yourself, a COOL-DOWN (taking a rest after passing the finish line ) activity, 5 minutes would be okay. ie. walking for a certain period of time, stretching, etc. , to help recover more quickly.
HAVE A SAFE RUN TO ALL RUNNERS!
