10K Top Run on Sunday

Sunday is the Parelloop Brunssum, in which I'll take part in the 10K Top Run. The 10K Top Run is the main event and is an invite-only race consisting of elite runners. Of course I'm not an elite or even sub-elite runner, but I was invited to run in the event by the organizer, so I'm definitely not turning it down. This will be a perfect opportunity for me to update my 10K PR, which is incorrect on the runners' list. The course is somewhat fast but has a few gradual inclines, so acheiving a personal best will be some task. Also, the legs aren't feeling all that fresh after running 9, 11, 10 (including fartlek) & 9 miles following Sunday's half-marathon. I hope the next couple days of short and very easy running will freshen up the legs

Wed: 10.2M @ 6:42 pace including 2 x 3-2-1 + 3 x :30
