Currently busy finalising an article on Racing a 10k

won't be out in time before Sunday however, it mentions that your 1st km is at your 6 x 1k pace .. no need to go quicker than that

then you settle into a rhythm of running your overall pace per km

1km at a time, focusing only on hitting the split for that 1km, never try to make up for a slow km

from 2km to 7km the idea is to stay relaxed at speed, from 7km, you have to bring your arms into it and to work at hitting the target times per km . the overall pace

then the last 1km should more or less be the same as the first km

hope this will work for you

TheEd
ps.. enjoy the challenge

TheEd - fantastic, thank you. This is exactly the kind of thing that makes these boards and your feedback so helpful.

Very much looking forward to Sunday, will report back post-race.

Cheers,
EBFM

Today was a bit of a disappointing effort, ended up with 38:13 by my watch for the 6 miles, or 3:57/k. Not really sure what to say, as last year I ran 37:08 and by my times from the 2k and 1k sessions my fitness is better this year. It was a bit hotter and more humid than usual, and I finished around some of the same people I have in years past, so it's a bit tough to assess. But overall the field seemed about as fast as last year so no real excuses. Fast first k was out the window with a ton of traffic, and after that I never really got going and struggled in the later stages before the downhill finish. Splits below.

you need to find another race as soon as you can

there is not much wrong with your race and sometimes things can 'inexplicably' simply not work

any thoughts on a race in the next 2 weeks or even next week consider a Park Run

Yeah, it kinda feels that way. The next one I have my eye on is a 5k/10k Aug. 24. There aren't any obvious races before then, though I'll look around.

If I don't find one for the interim, I have 4 weeks including this one between races. What's the best approach to that?

Cheers
