Anyone else aiming for this at the moment?
Changed route for a less hilly 10k tonight and scored new PB of 52:00....
went off too quick and paid for it in the middle section, but managed to come back pretty strongly and finished withmy fastest km.......
it's all gone very quiet here.... has NFG scared everyone away with his stonking time !?
I'm doing a 10k on Sunday, feeling ready... can't wait to give it a go! Will go for a very easy run tomorrow and then rest up for race day.
Good luck Doctor.
I have one Sunday after next. I did a sub 2hr half mara on Sunday so I'm not doing 10k specific training at the moment. Coupled with the fact it's a hilly trail race at the end of June I'm not hopeful for a sub 50min.
Good luck for your run too, let us know how you get on. Sub 2hrs half marathon is good going though, well done on that. That will be my next objective (whether I manage anything good on Sunday or not) as I've got a half to train for in September.
Hi Guys-- going to jump on this thread as improved my best training 10k run this evening by quite a bit and think 10k is possible in 50 mins rather than sub-60 i was aiming for before.
Have done two 10k (garmin measured) runs so far and improved from 63 to 57.42
Posting the splits from my Garmin (please tell if too much information!). Went for it on the last 1k but nearly had a heart attack towards the end. So here's aiming to 50mins, Happy Sunday evening one and all and have a great week of running.
Thanks Jude. What is everyone's plan to beat 50 mins?
Mine at the moment is to try and increase my mileage - I've done around 15 miles a week for the last three weeks which is a big improvement for me. I can just about run 10k now but i try and kick too early and can't sustain it.
I plan to do some Fartlek style 5k training with sprinting to increase my speed work and I am going to be doing the parkrun also to help with speed.
Also plan to enter a race in July to help give me something to aim towards.
Morning Jamie - well done on the 10k time so far. I did the Mersey tunnel 10k last week in 56 mins and 25 secs but have a pb of 53 mins 57secs. So am in a similar position timewise.
I have the endurance now running one long run of 8 miles, one easy run of 5 miles and one tempo run of 5k per week (at a parkrun usually if I can fit it in). I have been following this pattern for a while and since Oct 2010 have reduced my time from 59 mins to just under 54 mins. I am going to introduce some speedwork and interval training so will now be training 4 days a week from now on. I am looking to join a club as well.
My next race is in September but I am also looking at one in August which looks a potential pb course from previous reviews.
In addition I think I need to try harder in races - I don't think i pushed myself enough in the tunnel run and in my last 5k race on Sunday.
Did my 10k race yesterday....absolutely delighted with an official time of 47:56 !
Here is my garmin if anyone is interested http://connect.garmin.com/activity/93357992
Completely destroyed my PB!
Well done DrFeelGood - looks like you paced it well and had enough in the bank to step it up for the last mile.
Great result indeed! You will need a quicker thread now!
Deva Duck - sounds like you have the right approach. My main problem is trying to go to quickly and burning out but getting a Garmin really helped my control this. Strangely my most recent 10k training PB had my lowest average heart rate (142) but i really felt i couldn't do anymore at the end.
