I am seriously overweight, currently just over 18 stone and intend to lose at least 2 of them by April 22nd (hopefully 3stone). If I can run VLM 2012 weighing less 16 1/2 stone I will be happy. I am following the RW 5 hr training plan and going pretty well (by that I mean injury free so far). My problem is, whilst following the plan it asks me to sometimes run at marathon pace eg Tues this week is 1m jog, 4m at marathon pace, 1m jog. I can run 6 miles no problem but it is all at one pace (around 12mm), I don't have a faster or slower. As I lose weight I will expect to get slightly faster but for now how do I work out what a jog is compared to marathon pace? Or should I just go with the flow and wait to see what happens as time progresses, then adjust accordingly?
