I have previously done half marathons and got my pace for that to 8 min miles. I was pleased with this getting just below the 1:45 mark.Last year I switched to focus on marathons for the first time and it became a little addictive so I did three (Copenhagen, Berlin and Dublin). My marathon pace was 9 min miles, I found this a good challenge and enjoyed the marthons that I ran.
I have decided to take the first half of the year easier and to focus on halves again, however when I am training I am really struggling to move much quicker than the 8:50 min mile marathon pace. I am getting quite frustrated at not being able to pick up my pace. Is this normal?
I have just under 8 weeks until my half marathon and would like to get under 1:45 again - any advice would be welcomed.
