Just wanted to know what a decent first run at 20K is? I ran 20K in 1:56:27.
20.01 km Run in Milton Keynes on 5 Oct 2012 08:03 on 2012-10-05 | running Training Log Entry | MapMyRUN
I'm doing alot more speedwork over the next few weeks in prep for my 10k but up to now my training has been for endurance so I'm pretty sure I can shave a chunk off my 10k but obviously need to go out and do it first.
My targets for my races 10k - 49 minutes (current best 55.43) 1/2 Mara - 1 Hr 51 Minutes (No PB) Full Marathon - sub 4 Hours
I'd say that's a decent 20k time
I ran my 1/2 today which is 21k and I did it in 2:03,but I'm also 45...so yeah, I think you can definitely run a 10k in :49
