I have started my training for my first half marathon and on advice I received earlier in the week I have entered into a 10km race in 3 weeks time. I am interested at experienced runners suggestions to what a good target time would be. Please see some details I have put below to give you an idea of where I am:
I am currently running 3 times a week, having started a fortnight ago after months without any training. I ran a comfortable 5km in 23:50, and then a very steady 10km in 53:52. It was the first 10km I had ever ran so I ensured that I ran it
at an easy pace to ensure I finished it and in truth I felt absolutely fine afterwards. Based on this and th fact I still have a couple of weeks full training, what do you suggest would be a good target for a race time. I am planning on building up so that I can really run the race hard so I want to set an optimistic but achievable target!
