Digital Subscriptions > Women’s Running > January 2019 > RUN YOUR BEST 10K


One of the most popular race distances, a 10K is a perfect first race as well as a great distance to bust a PB. Laura Fountain explains how you should approach your next 10K, and the training to help you comfortably over the finish line

A10K is a great distance to focus on over the colder months. It’s a good challenge to work up to from your first couple of 5Ks, but it also offers a way to inject some speed into your legs if you’re planning to do a longer race later in the year.

Concentrate on both your nutrition and your cross-training as well as following the plans we’ve put in place for you over the next couple of pages – what you’re putting inside your body and strength exercises are just as important as your weekly mileage. If this is your first 10K, try keeping a running diary to help you see firsthand the improvements you’re making with every run. And don’t forget to reward yourself with those all-important rest days. With a few weeks’ training, you can see some real improvements in your pace and bag yourself a shiny new 10K PB by the spring.
