I took part in a 10k last year, I completed in a not too bad 1hr9mins. My only problem was i couldnt run without walking every couple of km.
I havnt run properly for about 8 weeks and my fitness is shocking! I am determined this year to be able to run the whole 10k without stopping, so i am going back to basics, and following a 10k training plan.
Any hints tips, would be appreciated especially about how to control your breathing.
