I’ll jump on the bandwagon and say a season of shorter races may be a good idea. It will give you a chance to shake up the routine and work on some different things. As Zeke pointed out, while consistency can be a great thing, it can also become detrimental. Sometimes, you just need to shake things up in order to keep improving. I know some people promote the idea of doing one marathon a year and one shorter racing season a year in order to help balance your training. While training for the marathon and the 10k is in a broad sense very similar, the details are different and it is within those details that we can discover what we are missing in our training.

Other good points were made but I won’t repeat what was already stated except for what I think may be the key point, the possibility of focusing on some shorter races.
