From your 1st 10k to your current PB.
Been running now for 9-10 weeks, only done 10K distance a handfull of times trying to get a decent time started with 52mins in training then in my 1st proper 10K race after 3 weeks training got a 48.05PB then last week in Wesham with another 6 weeks training behind me I clocked 44.51 which i'm still quite pleased with!!
I'm aiming to go better in my next race and the ultimate goal is a sub 40 hopefully some time next year, with that in mind i've added milage to my scheduled runs and an extra run on Saturday which is a fast 5K.
my 10k has improved but really embrassed about the timing now.... everyone is soooooo fast !!!
First ever 10k Oct 2008 - 1hour38 !!! Was hungover and walked most of the way
September 2009 - 1hour 12 (with very litlle running training, i think twice)
November 2009 - 1hour 5 with running training once a week
I have increased my running training to three times a week. Tuesday 5-6 miles, Thursday the same and Sunday a slow 6/7ish miles. My aim for 2010 is to get it under 1hour.... I would honestley cry at the finish line if I could do that

To give hope to our older readers

Living proof that you can get quicker as you get older, in fact all my PB's from 5K to 90K have been set in past 18 months.
Thanks Dave - I'll take heart from your times.
Mine go:-2001 59:59 aged 502002 44:59 512003 44:15 522004 44:03 532005 43:23 542006 45:35 552007 45:27 562008 46:32 572009 43:43 58
I'm very pleased to be back under 44:00 - now if only I can hang on to that pace until I'm 70 I could even start winning my age-group.
I ran my first 10k aged 19 and clocked 37.30. I ran my PB 31.46 aged 27. I think I could have ran a bit quicker but I didn't train hard enough. Still it's all relative. I ran my last race just over three years ago - a 41.40 10k aged 40.
Consistent training was key for me.
I did my first 10K in 2006, not really taking running very seriously until about a year or so later. My first 10K was 1:06 something, then the year after 1:00:06 (gutted!!) followed by 58:00 the year after.
This year I was marathon training when I did another 10K and brought my PB down to 54:12, which I was really pleased with.
(I'm female, 5'4" and nearly 30)
I'm 38 and started running in June, having played an occasional game of squash beforehand. My first 10k in September was 55.25 and I was very please to drop that to 53.11 in October. The big surprise came, however, in November when I clocked 49.45 on a course renowned for PBs (no it's not all downhill..!) which I was absolutely thrilled with. For me, knowing how to pace myself was critical - ie not flying off at the start and paying the price later.
10k PB on saturday 5 years to the day I did my first one...
41:36 in my first one and 37:43 on saturday.
I got it down to sub 40 on my 4th 10k but have about 6 times around the 39(39:53,39:55,39:56,39:19,39:05 and 39 unofficial) mark.I thought I was never going to beat it!
Quite injury prone so unfortunately never got going as much as I've wanted. Would be hoping for 36 odd in the coming year but we'll see...
20 year old runner, was always quite into sports but stopped whenever went to university etc but only noticed when really struggled to walk dog up Slieve Donard mountain (Northern Ireland) how my fitness had really gone. Then when watching Great North Run 2008 (on t.v of course) how i would love to do that.
First 10k- 15 March 2009- 52.10
Bupa Great North Run 2009- 1.44.04
Last 10k- 5 December 2009- 40.12
Just can't get enough running now and aim to break 40mins in the 10k where I started.
Did the 10k in London 2006 in a time of 50:02 with very little training.
then last year got an entry to the London marathon and did my first 10k in 46:06.
This summer been ticking over with 7 mile runs and managed the Hampton Court Cancer run in 44:20. Then the Wimbldon Audi in 46:40 when someone decided to put Wimbledon hill in the middle !! Then returned to the flat and quick Beddington Park 10k recently and popped in a PB at 42:59 !!!!!
Next up the Tadworth 10 mile and the Perch !!!
My 10k times have just got worse. My first (last year) - a flat course, I did 53.11. A couple of months later I did a hilly race in 54.38. This year I managed a sub 40min 5mile and then screwed up in the only 10k I ran - getting over 56 minutes.
Still run, still enjoy it, just can't get it together for races reliably!
My first ever race was a 10k, run in May 2008 when I was 50. My time was 58:46. My most recent 10k was last Sunday and I set a new PB of 49:32, which was my first time sub-50 so I was pretty pleased.
Funny thing is, when I ran that first race at just under 10 min/mile I couldn't imagine being able to go much faster, I was very chuffed just to finish, let alone finish in under an hour. Then when I did a 9 min/mile time I couldn't imagine ever being able to go much faster than that. Now I've just done an 8 min/mile time and I can't believe I could go any faster than that! But judging by some of the times some "more mature" runners on this thread have posted, you never know!!
