“First time I did 10k below 50 min was in 2010 and it was 48min. Now I did it in 42 min. Focus on keep the rhythm and don't push to hard on the first half of the challenge are the keys.”

Glen Q Run a 10k in less than 50 mins Challenge

Contributorgold 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 Run a 10k in less than 50 mins Challenge

Contributorbronze 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!

Thank you, it is a good action shot, I don't particularly like the shot though - I looked very strained!
