British 10K….Again!

I’ve recently signed up to do the British 10K again this year. It’s on the 8th of July, so I have just under 3 months to train for it. Eeeeek!! I’m determined to be more prepared for it this year, so I’ve really got to get myself in gear…..

10k RACE

** Tempo Running is a fast, continuous run in the middle of a long/mid distance run. It helps to prepare your body for faster, longer runs as well as adapting your body to deal with lactate levels.

I really want to stick to this routine. It seems simple enough and I can plan it around my work schedule. Perhaps you guys have further advice or training tips to add? I’d love to hear from you all!

The other thing I’ll have to prepare for, is that I’ll be running the 10K in a fox suit. I’m raising money for The Wildlife Aid Foundation, so really wanted to make an impression. I won’t be wearing a mascot suit or anything like that, but it will definitely be some kind of suit. I also want to be prepared for running with some extra weight. Have any of you tried this before?

Well, here’s a look at my Just Giving page if you want some more info on my run….

Well, now the training starts! Here’s a picture of me after I finished the race last year….

At the end of my first ever 10K in 2011......

I really want to do you all & myself proud, so I’m going to give it my all!
