Preparation
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.
