Negative split 10k

Posted by thepeteplan on May 28, 2010

As I’m likely to take the weekend off to recover fully I thought I’d push today’s 10k a little more. A nice negative split plan starting at 1:50 then stepping the pace down by a second at a time.

10k = 35:29.5 / 1:46.4 / 26
1k splits:
1:50.0 / 26
1:48.9 / 26
1:47.9 / 26
1:47.4 / 26
1:46.9 / 26
1:46.0 / 27
1:45.4 / 27
1:44.9 / 27
1:40.7 / 28

A nice cruise for most of it building into a strong last quarter, and pushing it towards the end to dip under 35:30. I started quite light (high rate for the pace) because I find this more effective for a strong negative split plan – easier than having to lighten the stroke as you go.
