After starting C25K in January and completing it in March, I have managed to continue running regularly 3 times per week. I normally go out first thing in the morning, after just a cup of coffee. I've now entered my first 10K in a couple of weeks. As It starts at 10am - I will definitely need to eat something first. Does anybody have suggestions on best things to eat before running (I guess I will try to eat around 8am - to allow time for breakfast to settle before the start).
In addition, any suggestions on the best way to run the 10K (race)? My objectives are simple: run the complete distance; don't get injured, and don't worry about the time (so I will starting at the back and plan to stay there). So beyond starting slow - anything else I should think about?
Since graduating C25K, I found myself getting so stressed by apps measuring speed and distances that I now run without any - so no idea how far I normally run, but on my weekly long run, I am up to running (slowly) for about 75mins, so I think I should be able to do this.
