Don't ask me to measure a run
Today, I decided to run 10K - to make sure I can do it before I do a 10K race. I was expecting to have to walk but I just kept slowing the pace down (slower than slow walking) and had a great run.
I'd decided to walk the last bit back to my flat so that I had a chance to cool down and loosen the legs a bit but thought I'd mapped out a route that didn't allow for any cheating (the Thames in the middle means no short cuts)
I ran 9.48 according to mapmyrun. Still at least I know I can do it and feel pretty good as well.
You will be fine.
My furthest training run for a recent 10k was 8km and I knew it was enough. On the day with all the other runners it will be much easier.
Well done on your run and enjoy your race.
