no stamina?

change strategy.....

run to the next water point....

the water pts prolly abt 2.5km apart?

when u reach there....take a sip n walk 2-3 lamp posts....

u r able to lower ur HR n rest ur legs a little...

when u run again.... ur legs will feel fresh...

go try it out during ur training run...

liddat.... i m sure u can easily complete ur 10km within 1hr 30mins :)

This is also my 2nd nightmare when attending a race. hahahaha. esp the first few races. the first nightmare is when caught by SgRunners forumers when slacking :He He:

btw, the thing is that should enjoy the race... Don't think too much....

Ah, dont worry abt it... 99% of us are there for the fun and to challenge ourselves. Realistically, not many can win the prizes up for grabs, so just relax and enjoy your run.

Also, if you're coming in at about 1.5 hrs, that's not really going to be the slowest in the race, so you're confirmed not to come in last. There are still going to be folks coming in after 2 hours (just check previous race results for 10k)

i oni, so far, ran about 2.2km (according to mapmyrun) at about...... 15mins. but speed will definitely drop from then onwards.

at dat mark, my lungs were heavy, my head was spinning, my throat was so dry... i can feel tumbleweeds rolling around...

i'm gona try to run 5km tonight.

Do a run-walk like wat Tiwazz recommended and you'll be surprised at how quickly the distance go by... :)

Take a bottle with you so you can take sips during your run... btw, GE10k is a very newbie friendly race, you'll won't be last... juz go there and enjoy the race... :smilie_daumen1:

I totally understand how you feel, as i felt the same for my first 10K run.

Don't worry, you won't be the last to reach the finishing line.

Even if you do, at least you made it to the finishing line! :Big Grin:

Most prob i'll be around you during the GE10K race, as my timing is also around 1.5hr. Haha!!

Don't worry, just go and enjoy the run. :rolleyes:

You can do it. :)

When starting to jog, just take it easy. resist the urge to run too fast too soon. If you can do 2.2km in 15 minutes, aim for 2km in 15 minutes, and this translates to 7.5min/km which is a comfortable jog. You will complete comfortably within 1.5 hours.

If you can, find a pacer or some to run with you.

All the best. with more jogs/runnings, you will be able to find your pace and from there do better.

the human body is very robust. it can take a beating of 10k. so dun worry at all. moreover, you are not a couch potato.

on that day, do whatever to have fun. run, jog, forwards, backwards, sideways, bounce, hop, skip........ remember to smile. have happy thoughts. before you know it, 10k will be over. oh... dun forget to dress up. look stylo, you feel better and faster as well. :cool_grin:

longest timing for 10km run ??? forever !!!

achievement is view in ( a ) training for race, ( b ) toe-ing the starting line, ( c ) good running along race route, ( d ) crossing finishline, ( e ) having to earn good timing ...

belief you are achieving ( a ) and soon ( b ) confidently ...

fast = relative, finishline = absolute

so run the fast that you enjoy - belief you me ... there will be instances whre you will overtake other runners

then when see the finishline - run across that wit joy and remember to smile looking strong for the camera !!!

dont worri bout timing - itz just like $$$ always no end to it !!!?!?!!!

hi there,

my 1st 10km run after years w/o running is 1hr 30 mins...

for me it is not embarassing cuz it is an effort at my end and i accomplish it. u dun like the timing you achieved, then train up 4 it..... n u achieved ur PB

as u run more, u timing will improve dude..

its the satisfaction of the run and being able to completed it made me happy... rest is history dude. we are all different. some pp run fast. some pp run slow. and i am a slow runner.

run your own race n be proud tat u complete it dude
