Balancing Training & Racing: You like to race, but you know it can take its toll on your body. How much racing can you safely throw into your training program? It depends on what your training goals are and how you plan to use racing. If you’re training for one big, season-ending event (like a half marathon or a marathon), you generally shouldn't race more than once every two weeks. If you like to substitute a race for your regular speedwork, alternating weeks is probably still a good idea since racing too often is one of the most common causes of overtraining and staleness. No matter how you use racing in your training schedule, remember that race recovery is extremely important. Tip: Follow your races with a recovery period that totals one day for each mile you race. For example if you race a 5-K (3.1 miles), don’t do any hard training until 3 days have passed.

Know the Course, Calm Your Nerves: Before a race, get to know the course if you don't already. Run part of it as a warm-up, drive it in your car, or ask a few race veterans to describe it for you in detail. Knowing what's in store can help calm your nerves.
