You do speedwork the day after a long run? Which plan are you following?

If you weren't running this race, what distance would your plan call for on Sunday?

It is all right to do your normal long run if you are running the 10K as a training run. If you are racing it, one thing people do is add on the four miles after the run to make up the 10 miles called for in the plan. It does very much depend on how far off your Half Marathon is, but as a general rule you don't want to have to skip long runs when you are training for a half. But if the half is many months off, then that's probably not a problem.

Good advice here. Tapers are important, but do not taper if this is a training run for you. Do not do a long run before your race though. In fact, if you skip a long run the week of the race, no harm done. Use the run to monitor your training level at this point and tweak your training pace for the HM. Good luck, and have fun.

I agree with Catherine. If your HM is your goal race for this training cycle - then this 10K can be a training run.... not as fast as your 10K pace, but maybe faster than your HM pace.

It depends on your goals for the race. Are you planning on running it hard?

When I run short races in the middle of a training plan for a longer event, I do not taper but just approach the race as a fast training run. That means that I won't be as fast as I might be if I did treat the the race as an "A" race but it also means that I don't compromise the training program for the race that is my "A" race. So it depends on how far off your Half is and whether you can afford the taper and recovery time now.

Otherwise, I'd stick to my training plan but take a day or two off before the race to be rested for it.

I guess I should technically be doing a 10K training but I'm not. I'm in the middle of a HM training plan since that is my ultimate goal this year and hope to do 2 plans before the half. But now I have a week til my 10K and I am unsure how to approach this next week running. I know they say 15 minute run the day before to prime your body and I doubt I should be the 10 miles in the middle of the week that this weeks training calls for but any other suggestions??

thanks.
