Paddy’s patter

We’ve seen a few of our young athletes return to competition over the past few weeks and we’re hoping to return to track training this coming week too 🀞🏼

It’s great to see this and we wish everyone racing the best of luck.

Stay focused across these next few weeks of training before we ease off for a week. 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
