>Running 101>how does X country times compare to road?
"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

For 5ks there is usually a two minute difference, at least for most of our team;For a 10-k I would say there is a 4min diff. probably-you would run 4 min faster.

I have not done many races, but my latest I did tonight was a tough X country and I shave 35 seconds off my PB. It was 10k over an undulating course, a toughy for me. I did it 46:14.
The thing I want to know is what are your thoughts on how fast I will be able to do a 10k road race compared to this? Is there any general sort of rule, knock x amount of minutes off or something?
BTW, the course record was broken also tonight by 2 minutes. He did it in 34:24, outstanding!
