I have a couple of MTB Marathon races coming up where I need to drive over 2.5+ hours to get to the location (going by myself). I’m not used to driving these distances though I normally I just drive through and don’t stop. I try to stay as comfortable as I can and also using cruise control as much as safely possible.
I normally try to get there about 90 min before the event to stretch my legs, walk around a soak in the event and get warmed up. Sometimes I feel a bit mentally fatigued so like to try to do some meditation as a way to reset a bit.
I snack a little on the way and sip water through the journey.
I tried to do a search for a thread on this though couldn’t find one. Any tips would be great.
