Last week, on my weekend run, I hit 10k on a run. I was ecstatic. On Saturday just gone, I went out again on my weekend run and not only hit 10k, but took 2 minutes off that time *does a little dance*
So now, my question is this. I'm planning on partaking in a 10k race in 6 weeks time, the Bolt round the Holt here in Surrey. It's a 10k trail race which nerves me slightly.
I know I can do the 10k now, but doing it on trail is a different matter although I've been told it's a compacted forest trail and is near enough like roads.
Do I continue to do 10k at the weekends and try to improve my speed (with the help of fast 5k's and intervals during the week) or do I continue to try to extend my weekend runs to gradually build up by adding a 1k or so each week.
What would be the best course of action?
