I have got a 10k coming up in 3 week yesterday. I’ve been practicing speed and distance. I have to manage this as 2 people who will be there will have been doing a lot to help me. Man who organises the run has gone running few times with me, but hasn’t been sure I’d manage it in under 90 min which to be fair I haven’t managed yet and honestly don’t think I will. As I wanted to give it a go and have done it in 100 min he agreed I was ok to give it a go. The woman who works with him is more optimistic and thinks I’ll manage. So it’s got to stage where I’m showing them both what I can manage.
i did a 10k 2 week back in 100 min which I’m pleased with it was mostly level which I’m hoping the 10k will be. Since then I’ve done shorter runs working on speed, but now decided I need a few longer runs thing is I find it boring on my own. I’m thinking do few longer runs like 4 to 7k before 10k then after that I’ll probably work mainly on speed for shorter runs unless I run with anyone.
