I have the North Coast 50km on Saturday, which has a shed load of climbing. 8 days after, I’m running in the Newbury 10km (was the old Step Up Greenham Common 10km).
A guy at work wants to run a PB at 44.29, which wouldn’t normally be an issue for me. I said I’d help him but he doesn’t want pacing (so he says). I ran a 43.40 at Winchester in Feb but definitely have fatigue in my legs.
The 10km has pacers. What’s the plan here? Suicide mission with the 40 pacer and see how long i can hang on in a death or glory bid, or run with the 45 and see if I can cut loose at 6km in?
