Just wondering if there is anybody out there looking to break the 34 minute barrier for 10k. My PB stands at 34.28 which was done last july in our summer league races for the club(tadcaster harriers)
So to this year and I have very much started off as I did last year so far achieving 35.03 at rothwell 10k in leeds and our summer league race on tuesday in 35.19. two races in a week! a bit much i think to get the best out.
I am currently stuck on 34 and 35 minutes for a 10k depending on the course and a little fustrated that I am not edging any closer to that elusive sub 34 10k. I do a long run on a sunday around 10/12 miles when not racing for the endurance then during week I cycle and run on the threadmill as well as outside. Usually I coverer between 5 and 8 miles with the five milers being my speed run. The problem is that I start a 10k quick enough but seem to stuggle to hold onto the pace in the mile of the race and then finish well again. So it is that dip in the middle that I need to iron out. any advice?
Does anyone have the same problem? how do I overcome this and have a more sustained run? and do you think that proper speed sessions are the answer?
