GPS inside the house does not work and show correctly. What will I do?

Since GPS measurements are based on satellite signal, it may not measure properly between high-rise buildings and inside the house where the sky is closed-restricted. Likewise, the indoor run option may not measure accurately. If you want to be sure, measure the track you plan to run before a race and calculate how many laps you need to repeat. Do not forget to use a system (scoreboard, zikirmatik, etc.) in order not to confuse the number of laps.

Can I stop to drink water and meet my needs?

You can take short breaks using the pause and resume functions on your device or phone. We recommend placing enough liquid (500ml per 30 minutes) and a small amount of healthy snacks (may be nuts) at a suitable point of the course before starting the event. No need to stop time while feeding, time does not stop in a normal race..

How to start running?

As with any other sports and trainings, it is important to warm up and prepare your muscles and body before starting the virtual run. Doing 5-10min walking or warm-up moves reduces the risk of injuries. Remember that we are running for health and awareness, remember that we are running for health in these conditions rather than competing with others.

What to look for when running at home or on a treadmill?

As we always run at the same speed on the treadmill, our joints always blow the same way. A few times in the run you change the speed and slope. The trails, where hundreds of tours are taken at home, also turn hundreds of times. Turning always in the same direction forces certain joints and muscles without us feeling. For this reason, if the track can not be equal left and right turns, it must be run-walk, balance the loads in 10 or 20min intervals. Always listen to your body. Both reactions are different. Our body does not feel the same day by day. Do not force yourself beyond your limits.

Do you do sports while fasting?

Nutrition and exercise require personalized guidance. While fasting, if there are regular exercises and training between iftar and sahur, some athletes train during the fasting hours. However, we recommend that you do not take risks if you do not have experience in this regard. Remember, health first!
