With race day so close now is the time to think about what you need to plan during race week. Even for those of you who have done this before, it is good to review the below as a reminder. 

Beginning half of next week:     

  • It’s all about rest and quality fueling during the first half of next week. Aim to have early nights and eat lots of fresh foods. 
  • Try to avoid unnecessary stress. It’s all about keeping the good energy in. 
  • Just do what’s on the programme and no more. We know this can be hard so if you are tempted to do more remind yourself that it will be detrimental to your race day performance. 

Two days before the race:  

  • Now you start your nutrition plan. Go over your notes from the nutrition seminar and have everything in place and make it happen. 
  • Pack your bag for the race including warm gear, nutrition, hydration.
    *Make sure you are prepared for wet weather just in case*
  • Have a good stretch and early nights. 

The day before the race: 

  • Focus on your nutrition plan and good rest. 
  • Check out the course map on the race website - become familiar with the course so you know what to expect. 
  • Sit down and think about your race. You may want to plan your splits and go over any other important information about your race.  

The aim of next week is to get yourself both physically and mentally ready to be your best at the start line on race morning. By incorporating this plan you are increasing the chances of having a day that you can be proud of and can remember forever.


You have done the work - use the sound of footsteps around you to motivate you.
This is a great clip - take 4.24mins out of your day to watch it.
