10k in few days - advice needed
I'm running my first 10k for over 18 months, this coming Friday at the Exeter Fast Friday event.
I'm an mature (50+) runner and still relatively new to it, having come back to running last year following a lay-off. My times are pretty slow (I anticipate around 1 hour 17 minutes for the race on Friday) but I'm fine with that, finishing is what's important to me.
Anyway, my question is - having completed 10k as a training run on Sunday should I now avoid running until race day on Friday or shouod I do something in the few days before then? If so, what should I do - I don't want heavy legs on Friday.
Any advice would be welcomed!
