Race Preview: Doha Dash 10K

DohaDash

So, Tuesday 9th is National Sports Day here is Qatar, follow the link to find out what this national holiday is.

As official running events, in Qatar, are fairly few and far between – and as I happened not to be working, I could not resist the opportunity to sample another official running event here in Doha.

Official Tee and my number. Breakfast too – apparently šŸ˜€

The Dash is taking place at Losail international Motorsport circuit, which is just over 3 miles long.

Lots of corners šŸ™‚

Here is the official video from last year, as a teaser. Although it should be less windy this year.

Personal PerformanceĀ Expectations

DDtrainingweek

Last week I managed to run 61K and fit in a bootcamp and two pilates sessions, so I am feeling pretty positive about this race. Last Tuesday I did a speed interval track session and managed to comfortably handle ten 400 meter sprints at a sub 5min/K pace, so I am really going to push for a chip time around the 50 minute mark.

Looks likeĀ pasta and an early night tonight, for me.
