Last night I managed 7k which I found manageable. I've signed up for the race for life 10k on the 10th July. My question would be: do u need to have nailed 10k before this? I'm hoping, over the the next four weeks, to gradually increase the distance of my long run. I'll probably make it to eight and a half before having to taper things off. I'm hoping the atmosphere at the event will carry me through the last km or so! I'll take a little walk break if I really need it. Anyone else had experience of this? Advice gratefully received.
