I know that in many ways it will be difficult for anyone else to help me with this but I'm looking for a decent, realistic but challenging target time for a 10k race I'm doing in September.
Not done a 10k race before. Have done 3 Half Marathons, the quickest of which was 2:08 (was aiming for sub 2 but fell apart in the final 3 miles). My time at the halfway point of that was (just) sub 1hr. In training runs on a hilly course, I've managed to do 5k in about 26 minutes.
So, I'm thinking sub 50 might be a decent goal but am not too sure. Does anyone else have any thoughts?
The race is in 10 weeks and I intend to increase my current weekly mileage of around 20 to around 30 between now and the race. I thought about going to some Park Runs and trying to do them as quick as I can to get my 5k time down below 25 which I don't think should be too tricky.
So, am I being unrealistic or am I taking it too easy?
