Peter P 10.06km in 1:06;18. Supposed to be an easy recovery run. Did not work out that way with gusting winds and rain. Brutal hills where I ran today. Will get it done though.
10km is one of the standard race distances and benchmarks to measure yourself as a runner. Completing it in under 50 mins is a great target for someone of average fitness or who is fairly new to running.

Glen Q Missed it by 2 seconds today. Not overly concerned as I know I'm more than capable. First 5 today were with other members of my running club and were @ 26:52. Then I went out to try and chase it down. Fastest km of the day was a 4:30 between 9 & 10km. So overall the second 5km were 23:09. Pretty happy to say I can go that quick in the second 5 km. :-)

Eric L This challenge will take me some time. I just did 10k in just over 52 minutes but I injured myself. I have to take a huge step back. First I have to take a break from running altogether and then get back into it very slowly...bummer!
Jamie L 10k in 49:12 - just barely, but it counts!
Ali S encouraged this.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
