Sorry for the delayed response! I'm pregnant and over on the Babyfit boards these days!

Personally, I would opt for the practice 30 minute run. I think it will make you feel more mentally prepared. Then hop back on the program after your race.

As for eating, that's a tough one. What a late race! I would plan on eating a good breakfast and then grazing all day if it we me. Don't want to be bogged down by anything too heavy.

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and this is my fist time posting something here so I don't know if I'm doing this right. I finished the Couch to 5K a few weeks ago and just started the Bridge to 10K program (after about a 2 week hiatus from running due to illness). I will be running my first 5K race next week (twilight/early evening event, Friday, August 3rd) and was wondering how I should proceed. I would like to continue the B210K (did first day yesterday Monday, plan to do second day on Wed, 3rd on Fri, and then start up week 2 next Monday). Should I do a practice 30 minutes straight run before next Friday (like on Wednesday or Thursday) or should I just continue as set out with the program (and skip the planned Week 2 Day 3 next Friday morning or still do that too)? Also, since my 5K is at 7 p.m., any suggestions for what I should eat that day (and how long before I should eat last)? Hope this makes sense. I appreciate your help!

They are meant to be done three times a week if you can!
