Hi' i am trying to run a sub 40 10k. I can run 6.20 pace for 2 miles then fall to about 7 min miles. how do i learn to maintain the 6.20s?
MY pb is 42.02 my base mileage is 22 miles a week.
I'd say you're pretty close actually. I think you'd benefit from a long, easy paced, conversational run every week.....perhaps work up to 12 miles or 90 mins.
Also I'd work towards 4-5 miles of race pace intervals. I used to do 8-10 x 800m with 90 sec rest and slowly start reducing the recovery time as race time nears. One week from the race I always do a 4 mile constant race pace time trial (its usually a good indication of where I'm at).
Many swear by tempo runs too. Say 20 mins of 10K race pace + say 15 seconds a mile. So around 6:39 pace for 20 mins might be a great workout for you.
Thankyou everbody for the advice.I think i'll give 800s a go never done them before.
