Very good, Charles! Have you made any recent changes to training or is this reward for consistency?

No problem, I see I made some typo's too.

@Windsor Wool it was just a race because I like to race, and sometimes I can't race because I'm in marathon training. But Amsterdam is in October, so no reason not to race now.
Proper marathon training will start in July.
I never run this fast in training, as I've said before I have only 3 paces: easy, marathon pace and occasionally strides.

Firstly congrats to Bowman and WW I think you knew a strong 10k on 22 miles per week was a stretch.

I've nicely detrained after my April marathon and have decided I'm going to give the local 10k a decent crack at the end of September.

This gives me 14 weeks to get ready, I have a 12 week plan I've used before (actually I jumped onto the last 8 weeks of it).

I'm not normally one for following plans (definitely not over the marathon) but may post a but in here once I kick it off to keep me accountable.

Think I might have a bit of work to do to justify posting on this thread :-)

After a long break I'm well off the pace, was aiming for sub-45 at Harrogate last month but failed. Today at Bentham I had another go and was pleased to get under 44. Both fairly sporting courses, I've never gone under 41 at either, even after a winter of marathon training.

Starting to get back into running, gently. No adverse reaction from the knee so far. Maybe look for some more 10ks though the autumn.

Got something to say?
