Training and Nutritional advice by Katie Handyside:
As a daily experienced athlete you could run your fastest time on this race. Usually for a 5km I do an all out – just short of sprinting pace, then the last 500 meters you can sprint.
As a beginner this would be your best distance race. You can potter around and get a feel for what a race is like, measure this as an introductory time.
Short distance interval sprints would prepare you for this race, along with various other exercises, i.e. single leg lunges, plyometric exercises, squats and deadlifts are great running exercises. I like to have my clients engage in a multitude of planking exercises – they are hard, but they engage the core and their place in an exercise program is underestimated.
Power and Olympic lifting transfer into speed training and strength, both of which will assist in acceleration and efficiency.
REMEMBER: Don’t do anything on race day that you have not trained for. Race as you raced in your training, wear the same clothes and shoes, eat and drink exactly the same food and water.
Of course you will always run a better time in the race than you do on your own, due to the atmosphere and competition – but if you don’t, make sure you still enjoy it. Think about what you could do better next time. Each race you will learn something and always walk away with a smile on your face. A pat on the back for trying – remember, most people are at home sitting on the couch – you are out there doing it!
