I decided I would like to run the Marathon in 4:00 Hrs doing 10:1. (run10min:walk1)
That means For:
1Km a pace of 5:32
5Km a time of 28 mins.
10Km in about 56 minutes
Half Marathon 2hrs
Since I can run a very slow 10km in about 60 mins I think this goal is achievable. I have ample time to train and by the Fall I should be faster and able to go much longer distances.
At this point, the idea that my long runs will be over a Half Marathon is quite daunting....so I won't think about that.
One step at a time.
