Pre-race jitters

I’ve entered my first ever competitive running event – man vs. banana in WRCF’s ‘Beat the Banana’ 5k run through Hyde Park. It’s tomorrow and I went on my first run post-half-marathon session on Sunday this morning — and it HURT. A 32 minute 5k is not going to beat the banana and I’m pretty anxious about it. Will do some deep stretching tonight, take the morning off running tomorrow and keep fingers crossed…

Wish me luck and watch out for a race report late tomorrow or Friday. Any tips on pacing myself? Or just sprint the whole way?



  1. Seriously, loads of people don’t beat the banana. You have to be fast to do so…

  2. Thanks Jimbo, appreciated. I wanna go fast!

  3. Good luck Charmo!

  4. Hod – many thanks – it was a good laugh! I didn’t beat the banana, though. Ah well – next year!
