Bay 2 Bay Training Program Week 6

Bay 2 Bay Training Program Week 6

You have now reached week 6. Great work.  I hope you are enjoying the program so far.

It’s a great idea to have a dress rehearsal prior to the Bay To Bay.  Make sure you practice wearing the clothes you plan on wearing on the day to make sure they are comfortable and don’t cause things like chaffing.  The same goes with the shoes you are going to wear.

You should also have a plan on what you are going to eat the day before the race and for breakfast on race day and practice this as part of your training. For the half marathon runners and also the 12k runners who plan on using food / nutrition (such as energy gels) during the race, you should practice this in training too so there are no surprises on the day.  

And… if you are local and get the chance, do some training on the course so you know what to expect on the day.
