Samantha owns this week's sole formal entry on the calendar for her 10K in the city of sails -- Auckland, New Zealand.
10K is both a tough distance to run and a great half marathon test distance --- it's too long to just fling out the first mile and hold on like one usually does in a 5K, but it's not so long that you ever want to hit 'cruise' tempo for the middle miles as you do in the longer events. A challenging distance indeed, as it too long for one approach and too short for the other.
Go Samantha, good luck and run strong!
I would run down the lane and into the night; Run so fast I swear my feet would fly; But the smell of the world came into my lungs; The sound of the gravel when my legs went numb; And my heart nearly burst right out of my chest...
Good luck, Samantha, have a great race!
MT I agree- even in the half you have to do a very fast cruise for 10 miles or you won't make it to the finish.
PBs since age 60: 5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.
10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
Good luck Samantha!
That's a very astute description of a 10K race, MT.
Use your momentum...keep going. You know you can make it.
Well...it's Sunday afternoon in New Zealand...so Samantha's race is run...
