10k Race for Life: race day looms!

How did my training go?

by Adrienne Wyper

Back in April, I blogged about starting to train for a Race for Life 10k. I thought I had plenty of time to work up to running a longer distance (5k is my usual max). But it's funny how life turns out...

I've had a recurrent back issue since April and the 10k training plan that I thought I had ample time for has gone out of the window. As I write, my back's feeling lots better and I'm cramming in some last-minute training. On my last session I ran for 40 minutes. At my usual pace, I estimate that it'll take over an hour to run 10k - so you can see I have a way to go! And the race is on Sunday.

However, I am very determined to run it - that's why people have sponsored me. After all, it's not called 'Stroll for Life', is it?

Are you training for a 5k or 10k? How's it going?

And in the meantime, here are a couple of useful reads: running for women, the top five women's running shoes, and the all-important why you need to wear a sports bra!
