I am running my first half marathon on Sunday. Training hadn't quite gone to plan (calf injury/flu) and the 2h target I had in my mind seems unrealistic - I think I should be happy with 2.15.
However, considering the rallying factor of being in a race I am quitely hoping of being able to push myself to do better than that.
Would you suggest setting off at a pace based on 2.15 and trying to push it in second half, risking never being able to catch up, or start ambitious and burn out half-way through?
My longest run in training was 11 miles (yes -I did tell you preparation was suboptimal)
10k PB 53.30, 10M 1.30 - but this was last year when my form was a bit better
Many thanks in advance
