La food and hydration during the training period as well as the days before the race day, They are key so you can perform 100%.

 Respect the intensities.

Each training has an objective and therefore an intensity. Do not become obsessed in doing all the workouts to the fullest or "you will burn the engine."

Leave calm as you have trained your career pace and your strategy during the 10Km.

 Avoid innovating on race day.

It's not the day to try something that you have not trained and much less to release sports equipment.
