Last Sunday I ran the Tamworth 10K in 57 minutes, 40 seconds, my second 10K of the year. In fact, my second 10K ever.
This was nearly 4 minutes quicker than my performance in the Lichfield 10K last month. Despite having trained less, I ended up running less cautiously and it showed in the time I achieved.
This shows that if I can combine a good fitness regime in the build up to a future race with maintaining a steady pace in the run itself I can hopefully shave a few more minutes off my time without too much difficulty.
