Try not to go for pace, but for effort. Your pace will be determined by multiple factors of that day and you don't want to go too hard or too easy and realize after the fact you goofed up a key workout, or worse, get injured. When you're ready to start your tempo or pace workout at 10k pace, get started and pick an effort you feel you can sustain for about 50 minutes without needing to slow down,or first time playing with effort based run, pick a pace you think you can hold for an hour and then see what happens. This will help you get in tune with your body and give you more realistic feedback of your current shape than shooting for an artificial time base.
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Needs more cowbell!

You've ran 8:10 ish pace for 5 M previously so i don't see why you can't run that pace, or at least the 2nd half
Race hard but don't get hurt good luck.
Sack up and run.
