    This is probably a given but eating right and what you drink will go along way as well before and after the event.

    Eating a simple meal of 200 to 400 calories about two to three hours before the race is important to have fuel for the event, but also have time to digest the food. Never experiment with food or drink on race day. It’s wise to practice eating before training to make sure the food works for you, then replicate this meal on the race day.

    Good luck!

    I admire your persistence Justin.
    I tried running, but I just couldn’t keep to it and I don’t find it enjoyable. I much prefer swimming and find it easier to keep doing it as I look forward to it.
    Good luck anyway! Once I did a 20 km run, but ended up fast walking rather than running as I wasn’t prepared. 🙂

    Hope your run went well today. I’m a graduate of a Couch to 5K program as well, which ultimately turned into Couch to 10K, Couch to Half, and then Couch to Full Marathon.

    You’ve now proven to yourself that you can overcome inertia to get off the couch and get moving. Remember that. Because inevitably there will be times that life throws you a curveball — injury, illness, weather, personal whatever — and you will stop running for a bit. Just remind yourself that you can start from nothing and accomplish your goal.

    Great job.

    I ran my first 5Km race last year! Had a blast and before the end of the summer season was up to over 20Km.

    Hope you did well!

    Oh, running can get addictive!

    Last year I did a 10K race – unfortunately with too little preparation. I started too fast, I got cramps after about 8k, then I had to stop several times to do some stretching. I finished the race, but it was a disaster. I hope your experience wasn’t as painful as mine.

    Hi Justin
    Sounds as though you have done the preparation so things should go well.

    No short cuts when it comes to getting fit.

    Good luck.

    That sounds like a legit program – I need something like that to help get me back in shape for soccer season. I’ve ran a few 5k’s over the years and can tell you first hand that it’s not easy unless you prep for it in the right away.

    good luck!!

    It’s not that difficult if you’re determined you can do it for the sports people 8K is normal for them everyday.
