4 weeks to go to the Manchester 10 k

Well as it says on the tin it’s 4 weeks to my Manchester 10 k. I am sure I can do it now , this week I have ran 3 times each time about 5 .5 miles . I could do 10 k in about 58 mins before my recent cardiac troubles now I’m thinking it will take me 1 hr 10 -1 hr 15 depending on weather conditions. I’m better in rubbish weather ;-) I have a big cycle coming up before this over the May bank holiday weekend so I’m hoping that helps in a cross training sort of way.

All of you who are training for an event good luck ,and all who are running for any other reason enjoy x

Good luck to you Mollydex! Keep training and you’ll smash it. 👊👍👏

I’m overly excited about the Bristol 10k which is 2 weeks today! 🦋 🦋 Like you, weather conditions make a huge difference, so I’m selfishly hoping it’s back to normal by then. Much as I adore the sun and warmth, it slows me down and I certainly don’t need that! 😅😅

You will have a fab time at the Bristol 10 , have you ran in before or is this your first ? I’m so with you re the weather 😁

It’ll be my first ever race, hence the 🦋🦋🦋 I’ve run 10k five times, so the distance isn’t bothering me. It’s the unknown, a bit like the first time going to parkrun! 😅

It will be amazing. 😁😁

Oooh it's a fabulous event, you'll love it. Can't wait to hear all about it. And yes, it's supposed to chill down a bit from next week.

Best wishes with your training. I’ve entered a 10K night run in Dublin for next Sunday night. It will be my first 10K event with an official time. Looking forward to it.

Good luck and enjoy. A night run scares me as I have terrible night vision 😎

Thank you. It starts at 9pm so won’t be too dark. But the city lights and the river Liffey should be a nice view. It will be a huge crowd. Running in a crowd of over 2,000 people freaks me out a little.

Sounds fab! At the end of the day you run on your own anyway. My favourite race was with 13,000 people and beforehand I thought it would be horrendous but I loved it 🙂
