Tips to pass:

 

Be Well Prepared for the Test Do not start "studying" (exercising) for the R.O.D a week or two before the test. Fitness is a daily habit that needs to be developed 4-6 times a week

 

Maintain Healthy Lifestyle Eat more fruits and vegetables than fast foods, sleep regular hours, drink more water, and exercise 4-6 times per week

 

R.O.D Taking Meals On the evening prior to the R.O.D, drink water, eat more fruits and vegetables as in salad, and lean forms of protein like fish and chicken. Pasta is a pre-race favorite among runners and swimmers also. On the morning of the test, eat fruits like apples, bananas, or baby carrots - all high on the glycemic index and provide blood sugar for immediate energy.

 

Test the Way You Train Do not do something for the first time on test taking day like eat a protein bar or energy drink. Find out what works for you during your practice tests.

 

Relax Take deep breaths before the stop watch starts and think positively.

 

Treat Yourself Give yourself a reward IF you reach your training goals. Once you arrive to your test well prepared, the R.O.D becomes "just another workout" and the only anxiety you will get is a healthy dose of adrenaline that enables you to compete with your counterparts. This healthy dose is similar to competing in a 10K race.
