Half Marathon Pace
I am planning to run the Go! St. Louis Half Marathon on April 19, 2009. I have had a sub-2 hour goal in mind, so I realize now that I need to start preparing for this goal and start working on speed since my base mileage is going very well.
I ran the Alton 10-mile at a 9:19/mile pace. That’s not going to do it and that pace was pretty fast for my current level.
I need to get to <9:00/mile. I can do this, but I need to start working on it now.
So, officially, my goal is 1:56:00. That’s a 8:51/mile pace. I currently have 18 weeks to go… no problem. 😉
