British endurance runner Chris Thompson is ready to run this weekend’s TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday 4 November 2018. As a member of Team proto-col and user of the brand’s range of natural nutrition, he spoke to us about his approach to road racing and passed on his tips on competing at the front.
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.
The rise in popularity of high intensity interval training (HIIT) is helping to get Britain fitter faster. This approach to fitness is in contrast to traditional methods that relied on long slow runs, structured classes or participation in competitive sport.
Part of its success is connected to the online generation that accesses lifestyle content via an app, a video or with help of a blogging sensation.

With frequent impacts from competing, it means a high concentrate protein is key for recovery.
