I've not been in a race for two years and finally I'm getting back into it. I've got my first race coming up (LINCOLN 10K)
faced loads of injuries and slipped disc recently but I'm still determined to run.
my question is how effective is carb loading? especially over a short distance as 10K?
does it help?
I've never really followed carb loading before and manage quite well. ran a half marathon in 1:35 on two weetabixs = not clever i know!
any advice is welcome.
all I want is to beat my previous best time on that course which is 42:35. it should be possible to beat as my fastest 10k is 38:23 so fingers crossed.
anyone else running this race?
