I agree that a longer run would be more beneficial.

I see 10k as a speedy workout that I'm pushing most of the way, a half dare I say is more enjoyable from a point that up its more controlled! It's normally to later that I am really digging in! Maybe I'm being conservative at the start!!

Hey, what happened to that HM, Fat Tulip? Looking at your training, I'm guessing you might have been injured?

Just seen this reply! I've been injured for over a year now, so missed out on all racing last year. :(
