Looking for some advice on what race pace I should aim for next weekend, I am running the Amsterdam 1/2 marathon. This will be my 2nd 1/2 marathon, I ran Reading earlier this year in 01:58 which equalled to 9min miles. My LSR runs prior to Reading averaged around 10 min miles.
In prep for Amsterdam my long slow runs have been 11,12 and 15 miles and I average 9:40 min miles, I haven't been too bothered about my pace more focusing on getting the miles in my legs. I checked and they have pace groups and I'd like to start with the 1:55 group which would be around 08:45 min mile but I'm not sure.
What are everyone's thoughts? I'd love to run a PB but I am always wary of tanking off in races and fading at the end.
