10K Training programs towards your goals
The 10K is believed to be distance that gives you a marker for all events; above 10Km, that you may attempt. In the early 80’s many of the leading 10K athletes stepped up to the marathon with success.
This section will be developed solely for the improvement of your 10km Personal Best [ PB ]. In order for you to achieve success at this distance, there are certain elements in your training that have to be taken into consideration, so that you are able to race the distance to your full potential.
These elements are the dynamics to a successful program, and the balance between your lifestyle and training is of the utmost importance. We will take it ‘foregranted‘ that most of the persons who will be attempting these programs are not ‘professional’ athletes and have to hold down a daily job. Yep, that’s life.
Now there are no real secrets to a 10k training program. You need to apply the following to your training; in your schedule you need to add the quality of running at the 10K pace, you hope to achieve. Then you also have to be running at 5K pace and then added to this is a long run 1.5 to 2 times the 10K distance. This long run will be measured in ‘time on feet’ and not at pace.
