I am in 3 weeks along with 40,000 others going to line the streets of Manchester for the Great Manchester run. I would really like to see me smash my PB of 40 minutes, and maybe get a Sub 35. I was just thinking if anyone thought this could be possible, or if they have any specific training that i should be doing. I know i should do some speed work etc, but should I just concentrate on this.
My running background is that I started 3 years ago with the Manchester 10K and did it in 55 minutes. I have ran around 9 10K's now on hills, flat terrain. I have also ran several halfs and three marathons. I tend to do a speed session, hill session, long run and then other runs that are normally 5 - 10 miles in length. My speed and hill sessions tend to be 5 miles.
I suppose my question is this... Being that I have the endurance, should I just focus on doing sprints and speed and if I do, what type of pace, distance should I do.
I have also included my first and latest PBs
10K - 55 mins - 40 minutes
13.1 - 1:52 - 1:34
26.2 - 4:27 - 3:41
Any advice would be greatly recieved. I would love to smash another 5 minutes of my PB.
