Soupdragon, I know how you feel but you've already done more than I had when I did that 10k, you would easily be able to do that now if you had to. I couldn't even do 6.5k without stopping! Needless to say I was somewhat nervous on the day, but I can honestly say it flew by and it really didn't feel that much longer than the 5ks I had done on my own.
I was also worried about running alongside other people as that was my first experience of that, I had intended to go to parkrun first but kept putting it off. I actually found it a real help as I just kept focussing on someone in front and tried to keep pace with them.
The parkrun thing makes me nervous too, I read that you need to print out a barcode to be scanned, but - stupid question coming up - what do people do with it? Do they just run round holding a bit of paper? Sorry if this is such a daft and obvious question
I'm feeling really tired at the moment too - like I need to sleep tons more than usual. Was meant to be running today but felt too wiped out so went for a walk instead. I have no idea how all these people doing silly miles manage to stay awake!
