So today on one of my email lists I get the challenge from Hurricane Bob:
"Since you're so close to breaking your 1:00:00 mark for the 10K, how about a friendly motivational challenge? What comes first - I break 20:00 for the 5K, or you break 1:00:00 for the 10K? Honestly, this one is already in your favor: If the cop hadn't stopped you, you'd be there. For sure. I've still got to find 56 seconds in 3 miles."
I have my work cut out for me. There's a 15K on December 9th that I may use to get a 10K split, although there's also a real 10K that day in DC that's flat and fast. Coach Joe recommends a couple 10x100 sessions to prep.
That speedwork had better work fast. Er. . . . speedily.
