Pre-Race Jitters

Happy Friday!

Today is Race Day! As you can see in the right sidebar it’s a christmas Run @ Bruges.
I ran this last year and set a PB on the 10k. Jitters are already coming, because I hope to accomplish the same today.
Setting a goal is important for me, but this will be a toughy. The course has a lot of twists and turns, goes over a lot of cobbles and has bottlenecks.

The weather isn’t helping either, strong wind with chance of rain. Chances are that the surface might be slippery.

But hey, I’ll stick to the plan anyway today:

  • No Coffee (or maybe just my morning cup)
  • Healthy food
  • A little extra carbs
  • Enough rest (right … too late for that)

I’m lucky my daughter slept through the night last three days, so now excuse there.

In 12h I’m up, cheer for me 😀

What do you think? Will I break my 39:41 PB on the 10k?


10k: To Taper Or Not To Taper

As you can see from my featured image taper plans exist for a 10k, however I’ve never done it.

This Friday I really would like to break my PB so it crossed my mind to do it for once, but everything I found seemed too … serious.

So the plan is easy run last Monday, easy run tonight with some sprints mixed in, tomorrow rest and Friday hopefully accomplish a PB.


How do you stand on the topic?
