Welcome to the group. Follow a good plan, and run your own pace, and I'll think you'll make it through the 10K.

It is so rewarding when you are able to work hard and achieve something like that.

If you are more of a distance running, I think the 10K is easier to run in my mind. I was surprised how easy it was to transition from a 5k to a 10k. I did my first 10k @ 6 weeks after running a 5k.

Good luck! You can do it!

Welcome!

10k's aren't really that bad. 10k races are easier than 5k races in my opinion. 5k's you go out fast and 10k's you tend to start out slower. Just keep at it and you'll be running 6 and thinking about doing 10 in no time!

And I'm completely nervous about it. In the last 2 years I've run 3 5k races. Throughout the winter I haven't been consistently running so I'm starting back up as the weather has improved, but this time I want to challenge myself by training for a 10k. I'm using the Pink10K app, which starts me out running a 5k--Perfect!

But now I'm looking for 10ks in my area to keep me focused and the course maps are completely intimidating. The thought of running 6 miles blows my mind. I have to remind myself that I had those same thoughts as I was training for my first 5k. But I'm going to need some help and support from you guys to get me there.
