What can i have tonight for tea in prep for tomorrow my 1st 10k?????

I always have fish and chips the night before a race, good solid protein and plenty of carbs...I just have it because I like it and a race is a good excuse

The odd treat won't do any harm and you do need a decent meal in you. If I am staying away then I would go to an Italian restaurant and have pizza or pasta. So I guess none of my options are that great diet-wise, but it's only for a race, not every day. But for racing it is good to have plenty of carbs, and you'll burn over 600 calories doing a 10k ...not that much less than fish and chips. I find that when running I can treat myself too much because I'm running, but at only about 100 calories a mile it doesn't take too many choc bars to undo the good work! So, everything in moderation...

Tea - err that will be tea cake and a nice cup of tea. 

Fish and chips in the middle of the afternoon? I'm not sure the Jews would even advise you do that.

Carbs usually for me, but whatever you will be comfortable eating - don't try anything new that might upset your tum.  Curry is not a good idea for example unless you are used to eating that the night before a race

The thing is, you did it. So many people in the UK didn't do anything today.

 Top effort, and as you say, you now have something to beat!
