Postby runner » Sat Apr 30, 2005 8:01 am

Sunday i'll run a 10 k

they say it will be 25'C

does anyone have any advice? I don't want to drink during the race, because this is dificult and breaks down my pace (if i can make it with this temperature)...

thank you

make sure you get enough electrolytes during and after the race, you lose a lot when sweating. since it's a rather short race you might be able to do it without drinking, but the warmer it is the more your body needs the water to cool down... if drinking during a race slows you down too much you should practice how to drink and run, that's how you do it when cycling at least...

regarding the temperature I have been cycling in over 30C and it's really no problem as long as you hydrate and also replentish the salt you lose when sweating.

good luck tomorrow!

One explanation.. in the netherlands the temperature is really diferent from many other countries.. there is a lot of wather in the air...

the race went bad.. but the same happend to all participants.. the number one couldn't get a time under the 30 minutes (national top should run 28)

after 5 k i saw my time and felt bad.. the same story for my friends (who i met after the finish) we just considered it a training and went slowly to the finish....

i guess you've to get used to high temperatures ore do something diferent...

Hey runner

Sorry your race didn't go so well. I find running in hot weather is always very hard, also it's difficult to find motivation when you know that you aren't going to run a quick time. Hope you have better luck with your next race.....

I have very little experience running, but in the 10K race i did last weekend, i grabbed a cup of water and just splashed it in my mouth and spit it out, that actually felt pretty good....it was only about 15 degrees tho.

today i tried it again running with a high temperature 27 'C

It went :? again my exact time is not clear, but it will be around 10.45 on a 3000mtr and that is not something i should finish with...

but this whas my first 3000 mtr

now i'll try the 1500 meters in 3 ore 4 weeks.. the temperature should be less of an excuse on shorter distances...

i'll see how that will be..

That's what I do Dave as drinking water while running slows me down. I actually don't find myself that thirsty while and after running, I just splash it on myself or swish it in my mouth and spit it out.

Being close to summer weather now, I have started running in the wee morning b4 the sun starts baking down on me.

In hot summer days i do the same, but in a race you don't have a chance to run at an other hour.. 30 'C is also extreamly hot here so it's not the fault of anybody here. In the netherlands 30 'C feels like 40 'C in spain because of the air...

but i should stop complaining about this and act diferent and run faster...

I guess your right, you really dont have a choice what the weather will be when doing a 10k run such as you did. Altho it is very hard running in sweltering heat so dont be too hard on yourself, you did the best you could, right ;)

I am new to running, I have just started running every morning and I have only ever done the Times Colonist 10K three times and it has always been in spring so the weather has been just right. But I do know what it is like running in stinking hot heat and it is very hard.
