Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum but I just wanted some advice on whether this is a realistic goal.
Some background: I ran a trail half marathon last May in 1:52, but then didn't do lads of running until this winter when I've been doing 30+ miles a week for the last three weeks.
My long run on Sunday was 21.3 miles in 3:10, which I felt completely fine during and after, and a recent 'hard' run I've done was 7.4 miles in 57 minutes (7:43 pace). And I did a 3.5Km race on Saturday in 14:30.
I've got two half marathons planned before Halstead so I suppose they will give me a better indication, but I just wondered if 3:50 is a realistic goal for 13 weeks time? I can run 4 or 5 times a week. If its thought I wouldn't make that time I'll probably wait and do one in Autumn instead, but I was sort of hoping for a good for age place in VLM next year! (Which was 3:50 this year I think.)
Thanks for any experience or advice you guys can give!
