Since I graduated in November, I've done 7 Parkruns and kept up a two or three run per week discipline.
In a moment of blasé optimism, I have signed up to a Jane Tomlinson 10k run in June. I'm fairly confident as I ran a 4.5 mile route without problem during the Christmas break.
However, 10k is (obviously) twice what I previously trained for.
So my question is, should I be OK commencing my training with a couple of straight 10k's steadily building up pace, or should I attempt to devise a 'Laura styled' build up to the distance?
I feel OK but I don't want to get too sure of myself and end up failing. Also I'm no expert and worry if I may be doing myself harm rather than good.
Would appreciate your suggestions and kind advice.
