I recently finished the Cricklade 10k in 1 hr 7mins & am thinking of running a half marathon in April next year. The event in question (White Horse Half, which is about 10minutes drive from home) has a 2 1/2 hour cutoff, and my current speed(!) means that if I maintain my normal plod for the entire race I'll only just finish inside. I'm not sure I'll be able to do that over 13+ miles. What do you folk think? My fastest 10mile average is just under 11min miles in the Great South a couple of years ago.
I am concerned about plodding home after 2h45m when everyone has packed up & gone to the pub! Maybe I should look at the Bath Half in March, which has a longer cutoff of 3hrs? Or maybe, as my friend suggested, I should do some 10ks over the winter, & do a 1/2 later in the year.
