Share with VnExpressHe said setting for himself was to complete the race with the best possible performance and be in the top 3 while creating a chance to compete for the SEA Games. At a tournament held at the end of March 2021, he did not achieve the desired result because he ran on steep terrain, which was not forte. During the run, he gradually lost control of his breathing and could not follow the planned strategy.

Learning from the previous race, Trinh Quoc Luong is more prepared. He started the training lesson from the end of March with many diverse exercises, from fitness, strength training to speed exercises, climbing stairs to adapt and get acquainted with some types of terrain in Quy Nhon. .

“The first time to attend, I am very excited and looking forward to quickly experience the road with blue sea, white clouds -” specialty “of VM Quy Nhon. adding more articles up and down the slope, “he said.

Trinh Quoc Luong said that the biggest challenge in Quy Nhon road is the sea breeze and the sun. The sea breeze will affect the breathing because it makes it difficult to breathe, and it is easy to lack oxygen. So, he spent some training sessions on Nhat Tan bridge to get used to the steep terrain and strong winds. This is also a step to prepare for the exciting but challenging experience of Quy Nhon – the sunrise on Thi Nai Bridge.

One of the experiences Quoc Luong learned after many years of competition is to actively practice for long runs, try before the experiences of eating, sleeping, and activities like in a race to form a habit. From there the body will be more adaptive when entering “real battle”.

“Three weeks before the race is a very important time,” said Luong. During this period, each person often exercises more stress and concentration. Quick, project-based exercises are very important to fit your goals. After that time, one final week will be time for your body to gradually recover, reducing the lesson plan. “My body seemed tired at the time, but it was actually very fit, I would have to hold back so that when I play I can fully release my strength,” said Luong.

With the characteristics of the hot weather in Quy Nhon, it is important not to let the body lose too much water and salt, because it is easy to cramp or faint. Depending on each person’s body, when passing the water station, they must drink, but only a little to click their lips to avoid dry throat and maintain alertness.

In addition, on the track a recharge of an energy gel is also necessary. Trinh Quoc Luong usually uses at least 4 energy gel bars, distributed into pre-run stages, after completing every 10 km. The road is from 10 km to 42 km, you use one bar for every 5 km because energy is dissipated quickly, so you have to recharge more.

40 days before the tournament started, Trinh Quoc Luong showed his excitement to VnExpress Marathon Sparkling Quy Nhon. He said this is a special opportunity to experience a beautiful run, while improving his own achievements, towards the regional tournament.
