Thanks for the advice, I had done two 10kms, then a tough 10 miler, then the half, so I slowly and steadily built up my mileage, but after my half marathon, I haven't ran very much. I think I will be ok, although slightly worried as it's christmas, but I will just have to make sure I train a couple more times before the 1st Jan!!!!! I ran my 4.1 miles last night in just under 40 minutes, so I am ok with that.
I have been running for over a year now and I have completed two 10kms and one half marathon, and I am looking to do another 10km in the new year. I haven't trained properly for ages due to weather conditions and becoming a scaredy cat, as the loop routes near to my house both have areas surrounded by trees and are unseen by the road. So therefore I am a tad scared to run those routes in the dark. After much hesitation I ran 3 miles at the gym two weeks ago and then last week I decided to venture outside and I completed 2.8 miles. My main concern is I need to be up to at least 5 miles in the next ten days. Does anybody have any advice on this, bearing in mind where I live it layered in snow, so I need some treadmill advice I think.
To be honest I didn't drink that much before my run the other day as I didn't expect that I could run that far, I did push myself as the furthest that I have been running is approx 6.5 miles. Ok i have taken all this advice on board about hydrating before and drinking milky drinks after, but the question is, do I try and do this 10 mile Great Warford run on Sunday, what do you think?
I am training for a hilly 10 mile run which is in early September, I have only done three 10k runs and have been running since October last year. Last night I ran my first 8 miles, and afterwards I felt extremely light headed and sick. I am meant to be doing a 10 mile run on Sunday, which was a training run for my hilly 10 mile run, this one is meant to be flat/undulating, so not as hilly. Any advice on this, should I try and do the race? Any advice on the feeling sick and light headed?
