Week 10 Newsletter
It's Epic Week!
The countdown has begun
After your Week 9 Saturday run you will have done the last bit of hill running up until race day. We imagine that your bodies are tired and maybe a little bit sore after the last 9 weeks of training. Now it's about allowing your body to prepare for the race.
Keep to the programme, eat well, get plenty of sleep, and mentally prepare yourself for the big day. This will be a race to remember, make sure you get to the start line 100% prepared to be your best.
Even though we are doing shorter runs on Monday and Wednesday this week, locations and times have not changed. Stick to the programme ;o)
