My Leeds 10k Training

10km/ running


After I ran the Bradford 10k in March, I wrote post about the training I did for it.

As another 10k is looming soon (oh yes -I entered one on Monday), I wanted to give myself a bit of motivation and remind myself of the training I did for the Leeds 10k in July to compare to now.

I love to have all the data in one place ready to read as the MapMyRun website is full of popup adverts and can be difficult to navigate between old workouts!

I would say that I’m in a similar better place to what I was in my last 10k as although I’ve been running for the same amount of time, my workouts have been faster and I’ve been pushing more.

I just need to get some more 5 plus miles in. I ran 5 miles on Tuesday – I’ll do another 5 miler on Sunday, then again on Thursday around my days off work. I’d love to get a few shorter 3 mile runs in after work too, but I don’t usually get home until 7ish and feel exhausted! I WILL TRY.

The whole short but fast runs I was talking about on Monday is on hold until I get this out of the way.

I’d love to beat my time, I ran Bradford 10k in 1 hour 15, so anything below that would be fantastic! Untitled

    Hey Corinne, I have a question for ya. Although I’m not planning on doing any 10k runs Anytime soon. I’m wanting to at least attempt to get in shape. I’m 42 not working and I would like to start working out. Any tips?

    I stupidly assumed that your upcoming 10K would be your first (d’oh!)… I apologize if my comments on your other post seem condescending at all because of that… they weren’t meant to be! 🙂 Regardless, I still think you’ll do great! You’re approaching training so much better than I did… I need to take a page from your book 🙂
