Training Tips
10K Training Tip # 1:
Rhythm is very important in the 10K race. I like to call it the zone. A great training running workout to get in the zone is to warm up and then run at your 10K race pace for 2 miles, followed by a sufficient warm down. You can do this either on the track, or on the road which would simulate race conditions even more. You can go up to 3 miles on this workout.
10K Training Tip # 2:
Long runs are important in any 10K distance running schedule. Getting in two 12 mile runs every month will boost your endurance and will provide excellent strength to help with fatigue during the race.
10K Training Tip # 3:
Another great workout on your regular training course is to do a fartlek workout. This fartlek workout is a more structured one, but stimulates the race and is an excellent addition to any 10K running plan.

Set your goals high and don't stop until you get there. - Bo Jackson
