10K training plans for every runner – Running Fitness Article

10K training plans for every runner A 10K is a great distance to focus on over the colder months. It’s a good challenge to work up to from your first couple of 5Ks, but it also offers a way to inject some speed into your legs if you’re planning to do a longer race later in the year. Concentrate on both your nutrition and your cross-training as well as following whichever one of our plans suits you – what you’re…

Race Day Anxiety & Resolution 10K Race Recap – Running Fitness Article

Race Day Anxiety & Resolution 10K Race Recap I both love and loathe races.  I LOVE the community, the volunteers, the comraderie of the other runners and the medals. And it is VERY convenient to have portaloos and drinks stations on the course.  But when I’m actually racing, wow that is nerve wracking. Knowing that it is going to hurt, that you’re going to have to push, often from the startline, to get your very best effort. It’s not easy, but…

RunThrough Wimbledon Christmas Fun Run Race Recap – Fitness Article

RunThrough Wimbledon Christmas Fun Run Race Recap ‘You never regret a run’… except the times that you do, kind of.

St Ives Bay 10k and the Dune of Doom – Running Fitness Article

St Ives Bay 10k and the Dune of Doom I’ve wanted to do the St Ives Bay 10k for a long time. It takes place pretty much on my mum’s doorstep, with the start being on the beach. I knew I would be in Cornwall when it’s on this year, so I entered. The race is organised by Hayle Runners, so I was also happy to be supporting a local running club. After entering the race, I started to wonder…

Roadrunner – the Strathaven 10k 2019 – Running Fitness Article

Roadrunner – the Strathaven 10k 2019 Are we there yet? Is the season finished yet? At least there’s a XC lull and it’s back to the roads. I’ve had my double peak this year and pretty much nailed what I tried to do but even though last week’s XC showed that the tank is about empty but I still have another couple of races to do before I fade back into oblivion again. Strathaven “Run with the wind” (aye right!) 10k.…
