Yes I still want to do the M/cr 10km as a PB attempt, assuming I don't get blocked in by 39,999 other runners.
I was going to go to the race control to bump up my start time but cant now as on my stag do grrr.
So will just have to try to get near the front and push on and hope I don't lose much time in the first 2km. If it doesn't work out and will find another event to do though.
The problem I have is that I don't want to enter and event unless I am going for a PB, otherwise where is the competition, if I race I race not trot around otherwise why enter. I guess that is the competitive streak in me.
I guess the good thing is that on the Friday if I have a couple of beers over a 10km distance it shouldn't make that much difference as long as I don't go silly.
Wednesdays run tonight - I might try to configure my watch for it otherwise I will be continually looking down at it.
Hello, Started running last year and have moved from 100m (yes 100m) to doing 10km races (hope to get 54 mins in Manchester 10km this year) and have registered for the GNR (already done 18km in training) and then on to the Manchester Marathon in April 2015.
I have enough time to train and have a lot of help on here regarding my training plan.
What I am totally clueless on is nutrition.
I am 44 yrs old, height of 5'5" and weight 12 stone.
I want to make sure I start eating correctly for the Marathon and there is no time like the present.
Currently I eat a lot of Uncle Bens rice with Tuna or Chicken, with a co-op pasta dish at lunch with some sushi. breakfast I have Bran Flakes and a coffee. I drink a fair amount of water.
Can you please point me in the direction of food plan as I simple don't understand all the good fat/bad fat, good sugar/bad sugar etc etc. I really am a total novice in this area, but know I need to get on top of it to aid my training.
Feel quite tired this morning. I did a bit of gardening yesterday and took down a trampoline and cleaned a car after my running. I think I perhaps did a little too much.
I may not run tonight, depending on how I feel when I get home, but I am conscious I should not be missing runs so close to the race. I will run if I can though.
This weekend is going to be tricky, I am out Friday night, but can run in the morning and Sunday I am out all day so definitely wont be able run at all.
I am thinking an easy run on Friday and then my LSR on bank holiday Monday, then Wednesday etc etc.
Not going to be believe this, the Manchester 10km run is the 18th May, guess who has been invited to a stag weekend that weekend.......so going on the Friday, drinking water, then paintballing on the Saturday and then leaving to come home ready for Sundays race. I hope it doesn't ruin my race.
