How to Prepare for a Track Meet

When it comes to running track, I cannot stress the importance of preparation enough. If you expect to do well, you MUST be well prepared. In this article, I cover the most important aspects of your preparation for a track meet.

Food and Drink

The day before a meet, you should mainly eat foods that are high in carbohydrates. Carbs, in short, are an excellent source of energy for an athlete. Some of the best options to consider include pasta, crackers, bagels, fruits, vegetables, energy bars, etc. I always like to eat a spaghetti dinner the evening before my meet. In terms of drinks, you should be drinking water and staying adequately hydrated all throughout the day before a race. You can also drink Gatorade or Powerade for more carbohydrates if you please. I stress again, you must stay hydrated the day before you race. The day of the meet you also need to stay hydrated, but be sure not to drink too much.

Equipment

Make sure you have all of your equipment put together in a bag that is easy to carry around with you. Double check that you have everything, you wouldn't want to get to the meet and realize that you forgot something. Fill your bag with whatever else you may need. Pack a light, healthy snack to eat before your race for some quick energy. Also, it is a smart idea to make sure you have a few extra studs and the proper spike wrench for your running shoes incase a stud breaks.

Sleep

This one's a no brainer, your body needs at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep the day before a race if you want to do well. If at all possible, aim for 9 or 10 hours.

Breakfast

Breakfast is a very important thing to consider when preparing for a meet. Be sure to have a decent sized, high-carb meal the morning of your race. Also remember that you should allow enough time for your body to properly digest this food before your race. Spend some time to prepare a tasty but healthy meal for yourself. Don't just eat a piece of toast and some orange juice, try to add some more fruit, vegetables, an egg, etc. Two things to remember are that you should eat enough that you aren't hungry, but not so much that you feel full in any way and that you need to give your body enough time to digest this food before your race.

Warm-Ups

Once you arrive at the track, figure out how much time you have until your event. Warm-ups are vital to your success. Your team may do a group stretch and warm-up that you should participate in, but you need to do more on your own if you expect to do well. Give yourself 30 to 45 minutes to prepare for your event on your own. It is important to develop your own style of warming up, as it should become routine, something you do without thought. Try to mix in some light jogging with some striders, along with stretching. Run to a set point and back, stretch for a while, run again. Remember that you shouldn't work yourself too hard, but get loose and work up a mild sweat before your race.

Mental Focus

The day of a race, it is normal to be nervy, but you will probably also be excited. This nervousness is adrenaline, which will actually cause you to run faster, so don't fret! It is important to stay mentally ready for your event. Once you arrive at the track, maybe take a quick warm-up lap to get a good feel for the track. Mentally, run through your event in your head. If this is your first event, you might be unsure on a few things, but make sure you resolve all of your questions with your coach. Don't be afraid to ask! Your coach will most likely be pleased that you are concerned and will add in a bit of extra advice.

Cool-down

After your race, try to go on a light jog to cool down to avoid being sore later on. If any of your teammates competed in the same event, ask them if they would like to go on a brief cool down with you. I'm usually very jumpy and excited after a race, so I usually use this time to talk with my teammates about the race.
