A lot of my friends know that I’m not really a running person. I do cardio vascular activities such as dancing, circuit training, and etc. but running isn’t on my list of activities that I enjoy. Last Sunday, I challenged myself and ran 10k for Run United 2. To be honest this is my second running event that I attended and I must say that it was really hard. Running needs proper discipline and training in order for you to finish strong and exceed yourself. Here are my key learnings from my 10K run last Sunday.

1. GET ENOUGH SLEEP
Having a minimal amount of sleep may lead to exhaustion and dizziness. Make sure to get enough rest before your race day.
2. DON’T BE LATE
If you want to break your PR, please come on time. It’s really best to have that mindset that you’re running on the right time and with pacers too. This happened to me yesterday and I failed to achieve my goal of doing SUB1.

In my case, I ran with my GH360 fam. It’s really awesome to have a support team with you and friend to run with.
I can’t wait to run again and achieve my SUB 1 goal! How about you? How will you exceed yourself? Comment your answer below.
