Thanks for asking the question Amy and thanks Coach Nancy!! I am a week and a half away from a 9K, and was wondering the same thing.

Thanks!

Amy,

For this distance you do not need to worry about carb-loading. Carbs should already be a good 50-65% of your total daily calories which is enough to get you through your run. One thing to remember is NO NEWS the week of your race--in other words, no new food, clothes, shoes, socks, etc.

I wish you well on your 10K! RUN SPARK STRONG!
Nancy

HI:
I have heard about carb loading the week before a race. Can anyone give me some advice. I race on Saturday at 6:30 pm and am doing a 10k. I have planned on having pasta for supper the night before and oatmeal for breakfast the day of. Any suggestions for the rest of the day and when I should stop eating prior to the race. Is there anything I should avoid this week (besides my wine)!
Thank-you
Amy
