Durban10K

Durban10K

The Durban10K is coming to Durban for the first time this October. Have you entered yet? I’m getting ready to run and I want you with me.

We live in a beautiful city, and what is better than seeing our city from the streets? We get to run through town, see some famous landmarks and end off seeing our beautiful sea as well. That sounds like a perfect route to me! I am most excited about this route because it is so different. I personally have never run into town, and we have such amazing buildings around that I think it is going to be beautiful to run through.

You don’t have to be the fittest person, or the most experienced, or the fastest. You just have to want to try something different! There will be so many people doing it with you, that it really will be so fun. I always enjoy doing these fun runs with a friend, because it’s a great way to catch up, have a laugh and encourage each other. I have a feeling we will be stopping to take some pics along the way too!

The route is pram friendly, for those that want to push their little ones along, and walkers are also welcome. You may find me walking from halfway…

    To be 100% honest, nothing is my favorite part of running. I always end up hot, sweaty and with a stitch in my left hand side. But I look at people who run at ease and I think, “that’s what I want to have” “that feeling must be great”, to confidently run without feeling like you’re killing yourself every step of the way. That’s the reason why I keep trying, because one day I want it to be easy. 🙂

      Morning Jane and Janeey Jane,

      If you’re getting a stitch constantly try concentrate on your breathing. Breath in quickly through your nose(for one stride) and out for 3 or 4 strides through your mouth. Hey, presto your stitch will disappear.

      I often run like this to drop a stitch but more importantly when you are training take time to concentrate on your breathing. Sounds silly but so many people breathe shallowly when they run and running requires masses of oxygen to your muscles. So keep your core tight, breathe deep and practice the one stride in and 3/4 strides out and you’ll be running like a champ.

      My running club is starting a “Couch to 10km” program soon. I’ll chase up some details and share them when I have them.

      Good luck

          best advice I can give is; relax when you’re running too. Mainly shoulders. Give it stick and let me know if you need some guidance. Advice is free.
