Karen - A 54 year old full-time working nurse and mother of two began a couchto5k  programme in a bid to get healthier and create a better balance in her life after a successful 12 weeks on that programme, running 27:40mins for her 5km, she got ambitious and purchased a beginner 16 week 10km programme, as she said herself after starting the original 5km plan she never believed she could run 10k in less than 51mins but she did!

10km Race Day Tips

 
  • No new kit on race day – whether it be shoes, socks, vest, or shorts stick with what’s tried and tested.  Ideally you should know from training how each of these items is going to feel after a couple of hours on your feet.

 

  • Know your nutrition – there are a couple of really important elements to this, be familiar with the nutrition being given out on the day both the fluid and any gels or energy sweets, being familiar with and perhaps even getting use to what will be on offer will pay huge dividends, sometimes our body’s require a little time to get use to certain blends so find out what your race will use and practice with it in training.  Also think about how the aid stations will be spaced and what works for you from an intake perspective, practice this!

 

  • Look after your sensitive bits – be mindful of your sensitive bits, and be generous with Vaseline on race day morning, think about all those areas that may chaff! And one I learned to my own detriment do not under any circumstances cut your toenails in race week!
