My knees don't hurt on this new plan. EVER!! *knocking on wood*
I used my last two 6 mile runs to determine my predicted race pace for the Half Marathon using this page: RUNNERS WORLD RACE PACE PREDICTOR
According to that, my HALF MARATHON PACE should be 13:35.
This also says that I should finish in just under 3 hours. It doesn't take into account how hilly the Half Marathons are that I signed up for this year. In comparison, my first one was MUCH flatter.
My race goal for the Vancouver Half is to finish merely "under 3 hours".
Hoping I get it in at 1:35:09 as suggested below.
That is slower than when I ran my entire last Half in 2012 at a pace of 12:41 which to hit again I would need to follow the column on the right below. BUT! I am not training as hard (due to an on-call work schedule) and frankly, I am really liking this run/walk thing because I don't need to spend $20-$40 a week on a physical therapist!
