As always, let us know if you’ve any feedback or questions.

Paddy’s patter

This week would’ve been a Grand Prix event, so instead we have a 2 mile TT. Use this as a time to focus all you recent hard work and effort in training, into practice – all or nothing – it might not be official but a PB will still feel amazing.

Have a great week’s training πŸ’šπŸ’›

Here’s the science bit, all times below based on running at 8 mins per mile for a 10k. You may need to adjust the timings for your own individual pace.

Following feedback we’ve created a pace calculator to allow you to work out your target paces easily, just enter your target 10k time in the h:mm:ss format and let it do the hard work for you.
For example 45 minutes would be 0:45:00, 65 minutes would be 1:05:00
