Make sure you run the whole 10k though.
We have a border terrier puppy and I don't know how he will be for running but currently he is totally mad and very cute!
All good advice Tiny. Start slow, get faster, sprint finish! I'm on week5 of mesocycle 5 of my last marathon, then I have one week gap before the next schedule starts.
Ok - just make sure you get enough sleep as the mileage starts building up...I remember last summer I did a lot of my running before work (not silly time like you though) and I was really tired every evening and felt ready for bed by 9.
