I'm running a 10K on Sunday. It will be my 3rd 10K but I'm hoping to both get under the 60-minute mark for for the first time and improve significantly on my PB (60:27) as I've done a fair bit of running since the last 10K, particularly parkrun 5Ks.
I'm aiming for somewhere between 50 and 55 minutes. My PB for 5K is 25:10.
My plan is this: 2 miles @ 8:45; 3 miles @ 8:20; 1.2 miles @ 8:10. I think this works out at 52:18.
I've never planned a race strategy before - always just run with finishing in mind - so any advice would be appreciated.
PS Hope this is the right forum; wasn't sure which was appropriate.
