If you've come off some 5K races enjoying the experiences and are eager for the next challenge, the 10K or perhaps the half-marathon is what you should set your sights on. The 10K doubles the 5K to 6.2 miles, and just as the 5K holds sufficient challenge for every level of runner, so the 10K is also a runner-friendly distance. If you're serious about your running and taking the advice of this book, you most certainly can bring your racing distance safely up from the 5K to the 10K and from there to the half-marathon (13.1 miles) while continuing to enjoy (almost) every minute of your races.
