    Looking for any experiences with this.

    I’m down to do a 10k running event in April. I’ve done plenty in the past and would hope to get close to what I used to able to manage so I’ll need to do some miles and interval training. I have a plan starting late Feb (10wks before). At the moment I’m starting to run 1-2 times a week to get used to it again.

    There are a couple of bike events on in April / May that I would very much like to do. I’ll need to manage very long days but pace probably isn’t as important. One of the events is a week before the 10k. I have a decent length bike commute so I would probably be looking to keep that up + 1 quality ride a week by way of training for the bike events.

    I’m worried that I’ll either be bust from the bike ride and do a rubbish 10k a week later, or I’ll end up a bit rubbish at both the bike and run by trying to do both.

    I’d be interested in anyone’s successes or glorious failures with attempting this kind of thing.

    Nah, it’s only 10k. Your biking won’t have any impact on it, and vice versa

    That’s what I’m hoping, I’ll just turn up and run like the wind.

    I’m also mindful of it starting a dangerous descent into triathlon.
