They are an active bunch here at FUEL10K HQ, and they made it their mission to find a breakfast that really kept them going. A breakfast with real pizzazz that tastes great, ticks the healthy boxes and doesn’t require any faffing about during those precious morning minutes.
So we made their own and they called it FUEL10K. It’s a delicious, protein-boosted breakfast that delivers just what you need in the mornings without any messing around, making it the perfect start for people who don’t stop. It’s works for me and I am sure it will work for you too.
What’s with the 10K?
For some, it could be a long run. For them it has become a philosophy. Malcolm Gladwell once wrote that if you want to become brilliant at anything, you need to practise for 10,000 hours. So whether it’s learning to code or dancing the cha-cha, martial arts or mountaineering, you need to make every hour count.

Core conditioning, free weights, plyometric work and good old motivation and encouragement has and continues to be a huge part of my training for the attempt.
