RACING 10

There are plenty of 10 - mile racesa round for you to experiment with speed. Follow our advice below and we guarantee you ‘l l get hooked!

A BLUFFER’S GUIDE TO FINISHING

10 miles is a long way if you’re under-prepared. If training hasn’t gone as you hoped, break the race down and try a run-walk strategy instead. Even one minute of walking every mile can make it go much more smoothly. Walk when you’ve decided to as part of your strategy. Don’t wait until you feel like you HAVE to walk.

Ask a runner to rattle offtheir race times and you’ll often get their 5K, 10K, half marathon and sometimes a marathon PB in return. Seldom will you hear a 10-mile race mentioned. Perhaps it’s because it’s not a distance we see at the Olympics or World Championships that the 10-miler often gets overlooked as a race distance in its own right, and it’s used instead as a training race for half and full marathons.

About Women’s Running

This issue of WR celebrates how crucial, and inspiring, families are to every athlete. Yes, you are an athlete! I’m writing this in the middle of the school summer holidays; my training plans have disintegrated, our house has been swallowed by mess, and my stress levels are higher than I’d like. I defnitely don’t feel like an athlete! Enjoy the issue!
