I have just completed my 2nd 10K race in an identical time of 51.57. I am really struggling in the last 2 miles, as you can see from my split times below.I was hoping to get a time under 50 minutes, and I am sure this is achievable if I can stop flagging at the end. My aim was to maintain 8 min mile pace until last couple of miles then attempt to speed up. I have been training a lot (long runs (9 miles is my longest to-date) and tempo runs) but it hasn't improved things yet. Could it be in the mind ? Do I just need to grit my teeth and push harder ? I'm a 45 year old male - I hope I'm not passed it
Split times :-
Any advice welcome - thanks
