I've just finished the city of manchester 10k, and did it in 40.28. I was shattered at the end of it, and actually barely made it. I usually complete 10k in 45-50 being a relevant newcomer, However I felt good today and really apart from the last kilometre was ok.

What I want to know is how I can now maintain this time without killing myself? Are there any good training methods?

Denis well done. The fact you were shattered and felt as though you were killing yourself means you put 100 percent effort into this race.

Mostly I would recomend you work on endurance first and then speed. Thats build up the mileage at an easy/steady pace and then add some speed sessions once you comfortable with the increased mileage.

Also think about joining a running club.

thanks happycat. Exactly what I was thinking and after reading the training forum it seems to be that endurance is the key with speed coming later. Must say the second best buzz I ever felt
