Those of you who have done a 10k race, how did you train for it?
I have just started following the Bridge to 10k mile. Week 1 is 4 x 10 mins with a minute's walk in between. Next week it's 12, then 14 etc. By the end you're supposed to be running for a full hour. Thing is, I've got 9 weeks to follow the 6 week plan and it makes me stupidly nervous that I won't get all the runs in and feel like I've 'failed'. So I'm wondering if I'm maybe better just doing week 1 over and over but adding a an extra ten minute run as I go along? Or trying to progress with the plan till I get to the week I feel most comfortable with? My walking pace isn't that much slower than my running pace.
I just want to do this right!
