Your 10k prediction isn't just double your 5k time

Use the formula originally devised by Peter Riegel:

T2 = T1 x (D2/D1)^1.06
D1: recent race distance
T1: actual race time based on D1
D2: distance to predict a time for
T2: your race time based on D2

Based from the formula above, I should be able to complete my next 10k run in less than 58 minutes.  How I wish that this is 100% accurate.  However with sufficient training and mileage I can make my wish come true.  Besides, Carlo and I need to hit a sub-55 on our next event (Fit 'n Fun Buddy Run)
