Run SMART coach Brian Rosetti offered up some important last minute marathon tips for the New York City Marathon at DNAinfo.com. Proper rest, nutrition, warm-up, settling nerves, etc. were just some of the topics covered.
Rest. “There’s nothing you can do at this point to improve your fitness in time for the race. At this stage, you can only hurt yourself by doing too much,” said Brian Rosetti, an Upper West Sider who founded of The Run SMART Project, a coaching service for runners.
Take a few days off completely this week, said Rosetti, and limit your running to a two or three mile run at your goal pace or a little faster on Tuesday or Wednesday.
