Ok, probably it is not the most exciting of the races out there, but I could not find anything else in the middle of Autumn close to Belfast, so I signed up to a Decathlon running series 10 K. Have you ever done one of those? It looks like it could be a bit of a advertising run, but I look forward to test myself after a few kilos drop (work in progress, for now down from 96 to 89 in a month - aiming for below 78 or less - my BMI borderline overweight is at 78 Kg. - by summer 2017 :).
I have a marathon training going on at the moment (with no marathon at the end cause I cannot run the Dublin marathon ...), but I am straggling in keeping up the miles given the caloric deficit, so I have decided I would still try to keep it up for a month or so but if I cannot I will do speed work and variation and then try a 6 to 8 weeks preparation for a fast 10K on the 6th of November (when young I used to run 10K in 40' for intermediate training, but this November I would be happy with anything below 50').
Any suggestions or training plan to evaluate are welcome
I am very Excited for my first 10 K preparation and look forward to it
