10K race is getting close now, so the training is getting more serious.
I've been reliably informed that it's best not to have actually run the whole distance before the day, which sounds a bit odd, but I'm happy to go along with it. I've run 9K twice now, and I'll have 3 more chances to do it again, before I get sent away with work for the last few days before the race.
Judging by previous progress, if I can run 9K a few more times, I'll be confident enough of managing the 10 on the day.
I never ever thought I'd be in this position, and boy, does it feel good!!
