Well, I completed the Great Manchester Run on Sunday in a time of 50mins 17secs. My previous 10k in London last year was 55mins 10secs, so a vast improvement. It was a very hot day, so that really had an impact.
I had run 49mins 48secs in training 2 weeks prior to the Manchester run, over a more challenging course, so I thought I was on to an even better time. However, I struggked with aching legs a bit in the final week and the heat played its part as well. Still, the tempo runs really helped me get those minutes down.
Thanks for all the advice.
Well done on getting a good time, I ran in the Bupa London 10K yesterday and it was quite hot as well so I know where your coming from.
Did a PB of 44:07 for the 10K so I'm happy with that, tried to keep up with Mo Farah but he was just slightly ahead of me, maybe next time.
Hey Matt - well done on the PB. 5 min PB is not to be sniffed at! continue with tempo running and a speed work session once a week and that time will continue to topple.
Essex - whilst you may think you're not doing any speedwork, what you describe above is fartlek running, another form of speed work to intervals. Looks like it worked for you too - well done on your PB also
