First run this year
Hi folks, I'm taking part in the St Andrews 6k this Sunday at Strathclyde park, and I'm nervous as hell as it's my first event since last November due to injury. I'm looking for advice on how to keep relaxed, and not worry that I'm going to injure myself. Any advice, no matter how weird most welcome.
I don't really have any advice, as I am a bag of nerves before a race too, so I know how you feel! I just want to wish you luck though, and I bet you will surprise yourself! Let us know how you go
many runners have pre race nerves s its nothing to be ashamed of.
I agree about keeping mid to back in position - I always run near the back (not by choice, Im a bloomin slow runner!!) and I have had some laughs with complete strangers, keeping each other going.
You'll be fine, once you get into your stride you'll wonder what all the fuss and worry was about.
Cheers folks, one of my friends is going to do the run with me, so that well ease the nerves a little.
