Doing a light carb load, especially if you a running 10k is an excellent idea.


Next, be sure that you are warming up as well. Take five to ten minutes to perform a light warm-up before you begin your virtual runs. This could be as easy as some brisk walking around coupled with some light stretching activities.

Make sure that your goals are something that you are confident you can achieve with a little effort put in.

So there you have some quick tips to help you succeed with your virtual runs. Use these tips and you can be sure that you’ll be off to seeing great success.
