I have 3 weeks till my first league race in years. Just wondered what the collective hive mind of fetch land would recommend to do for the next 3 weeks. I have a decent level of fitness (by my standards). The more prescriptive the better. I like to be told what to do 😊.

carry on as you are. You can't build up much in the way of fitness but you could help yourself mentally by doing a couple of sessions close to race pace, 4x5 mins, 5x1k, something like that, to practice how it feels...

I’m with OS. Don’t go mad, just try doing some miles at the pace you think you can manage over the race distance

Yep - I would concur, you could take your tempo running to target race pace maybe?

Don't go crazy, don't get injured. 100+ miles last month - think you are ready.

Don't do a parkrun the day before! and maybe drop the long run? Try one of your fakeparkruns at race pace? And a little bit of (non-injurious) faster stuff: short intervals a bit above 5K pace. Will it be hilly? If so, run some hill repeats.

Thanks everyone. Think it's a pretty flat route that would be PB potential if I was fully prepared. A fake parkrun at race pace is definitely a good idea. Did my first interval session in 2 months today. 6x2 minutes with 2 minutes recovery. The pace was a bit above 5k so looks like I've followed your advice Dvorak πŸ˜‰
