I have registered for the Matso's Dash Run in Broome on the 10th of July. It is 11.3k of hard packed sand. To most people it is nothing but to me it is Huuuge. I registered to force myself to go forward. So far I have just been unable to reach the 10k.
So I need a plan. I need to be fit. I need to be faster ( this morning run was 9.26 minutes per k), I need to be able to complete the run.
So far : 1) started doing three type of exercises to get my "gluteus" firming up. 10 each/ 3 times a day. 2) a couple of sit ups and push ups (wall / bench) and squats. 3) Three short runs a week.
My intention is to try to increase my runs by 500 metres a week? Or a fortnight? Is it too much or not enough?
I am also interested in knowing about food. To get energy without putting on weight. Keeping in mind I am turning 69 soon.
Really I need any information which will help me to do this run. A bit less than six months to go.
Thank you guys.
