How will I know what pace to run at?
I'm doing the Kent 50 Mile Challenge in July and so far the furthest I've ran is marathon (will be stepping this up after I've raced Blackpool marathon on 11th April).
I currently run 60-70 miles per week, although this has only really the past few weeks. Before Jan it was more like 40-50.
My current times are:
Marathon - 3.50. That was almost a year ago and am hoping to go around 3.30-3.35 in Blackpool.
Half marathon - 1.41 last month though struggled with a cold so "should have gone under 1.40.
10K - 45min last year, hoping for 43-44min on Sunday.
Obviously I'll have a better idea at the level of fatigue I'll experience on really long distances when I'm training 30 miles +, but how will I know what race pace to go for in the ultra?
I'm probably approaching it totally wrong as I guess for my first venture into ultra distances I should just be happy to finish, but I also know I'm rather competitive so would like to aim for a time - just not sure what time to aim for!
