One proto-col chilly runner Elizabeth Morris explains how she’s prepared for the proto-col ‘Chilly’ 10K.
The proto-col Chilly 10K consists of running 10K, 3.4 race laps around the flat and smooth surface on the famous Castle Combe race circuit.
I tend to train about three times a week which usually incorporates a speed session with Avon Valley Runners, ParkRun on a Saturday followed by a long run on Sunday. I have tasked myself with completing 100 miles for November so I am currently training all over the place. I don’t tend to change my diet for a 10K, however, I will ensure I drink more water in the days leading up to the event.
We can all sense Christmas. It looms at us over the November horizon reminding us that we’ve not only failed to budget for this year’s spending spree (again) but that our controlled approach to eating well and limiting excess is about to crash like Santa into a rooftop.
Winter is a tricky time to try and lose weight. Our groaning tummies yearn for sponge and custard on a cold day and pennies are tight to buy all the healthy food.
Eat what you want, exercise a little more
One approach to keep things on track is to worry less about the food we eat and instead make an effort to exercise a little more – or maybe for the first tie in ages. This becomes more appealing if your chosen form of exercise is free.
