There are probably numerous threads on this forum re: sub 40 minutes 10k, but what I’m look for is – can this be achieved with limited but structured / focused training?
I’m aiming to get a sub 40 minute 10k next year and was wondering whether this is achievable without too much training (work commitments etc) - maybe 3 sessions per week. This year I have run a 43:15 (in reality this was close to 42:15 as there was an error with the organisers at the start) a 43:30 and a 44:17. My training for these runs were limited (some long endurance runs, but the only speed work was a couple of 5 k runs and then circuit training).
So essentially how much work is needed to reduce my 10k times by 3 or 4 minutes and is this achievable within a 6 month period without too much training?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
