As we are getting closer to the race day, it is advisable to do these runs at least 3 times a week to train and prepare your body for the marathon.

1. EASY PACED RUNS
These are your normal comfortable paced runs. You should finish them feeling good and not overly tired.

2. LONG RUNS
These are the stretched runs that are meant to build endurance for the 10k race. You should complete them at a comfy steady pace. Avoid going out too fast and then dropping your pace at the end. Be steady until you finish, no matter the long stretch.

3. RECOVERY RUNS
These run are usually done after the long runs. They are meant to keep your body moving and help add some mileage to your week. Run them slowly, you don't need to put too much pressure on your body. Go easy and light.

4. TEMPO RUNS
This one usually takes about 45 minutes. Start it off with a 10 minute of easy running. Gradually build it up slowly for 25 minutes and then cool down with an easy running for 10 minutes.
