Track your performance
“There are many tools out there to help you maximize your training time. “Using a GPS watch lets you track your distance and pace more accurately while giving you more knowledge about your physiology to help you race more efficiently,” says Prager. Try using a GPS to help switch up your training runs by doing mile intervals to boost speed; or long, slow distance jogs to increase your endurance. We like the Timex Run Trainer, because it not only tracks distance and pace, but also shows extras such as elevation gain. ($189.95; Amazon.com)
