Sub-55 10k?

Yeah, I think I could do one pretty easily.

I've actually never done any runs that came close to the 10k distance, even way back during my running heyday. Even back then most of my routes were in the 5-7 km range. I've always considered myself a middle distance runner (1500m to 5km) and never tested myself at the longer distances.

Went out for a long run this morning, 9.4 km in just under 57 minutes. I started off only planning on doing my 7 km route, but when I got to the end I was still feeling pretty good so I decided to add on the 2.5 km out and back to the main road. Managed to maintain a pretty stead pace around 6 minutes/km, but it didn't feel like I was going that fast.

It will probably be a few more months before I start running this far on a regular basis. With summer coming, possibly not until cooler weather returns in the fall.
