I'd really appreciate some advice on pacing for my long runs. I'm finding it quite boring doing my long runs on the road, which where I live are pretty flat so maintaining a constant pace is quite easy but I'm starting to dread them as they are just so dull. I did my last long run (of 20 miles) partly off road and although my average pace over the whole run was about right (9 min miles) this varied from 8.30 min miles on the road sections (about 7 miles worth) to 9.45 min miles on the off road sections as parts are quite hilly. Does keeping the pace constant matter or is it ok for the pace to vary as long as the average is about right? Or am I just over thinking it?!
