Positive 10km this morning

I've been trying to follow a 10km Asics plan to prepare for my first 10km race in a couple of weeks. It was going OK(ish) until Saturday when I did 7km instead of the planned 10km. This seemed too much particularly as the plan has me down for another 10km today. Anyway, I thought I'd give it a whirl this morning and managed it in 1hr 25min. Now, I'm fully aware this is a slow time but for me it's the best I've done - 4 minutes better in fact. I"m still not sure about the Asics plan thing as a whole - the pace it seems to expect is too quick for me & my attempts to try & change it haven't worked. Anyway the structure hss helped - the race time will be the final verdict I suppose

  • I'm also working towards 10k, and was using a training plan which I ditched a while ago as it just wasn't working for me, was alot of run/walking and didn't suit me at all, anyway my brother has been helping me to gradually increase, long story short I lost my running mojo for a while but managed 7k yesterday and felt fab so hoping to increase to 8k next week all being well. Keep going, and don't worry about your time! :D

  • Well done!

  • Good for you- Distance not speed is the way to go I think!!

  • You are ready Sharon, no doubt about it ! You will nail it , youve done all the hard work and the other runners, spectators , atmosphere and adrenalin will get you around the course .
