Yes, HM pace is slower than 10k pace, but I wouldn't worry about pace if it's your first half...try to train so that you enjoy the race. You'll never have another first HM, so structure your training to maximize the chances that your race day experience is enjoyable and memorable! Enjoy the journey!

I think it really just has to do with what you are comfortable with. These training regimen might work great for you but not for someone else or vice versa.

I think there are no hard and fast rules on this stuff. Try it out and adjust depending on how you feel. It should be a good effort, but not painful. Enjoy your running. emoticon

I have a technical question I'm hoping you all can help with! I'm training for a 10K in September (and a half in November!) and I'm following a training plan.

My 50:00 pace run says I need to do 20:00 at an easy pace, then repeat 2:00/half marathon pace & 1:00/easy pace 5 times. Then 15:00 minutes of easy pace to finish.

My question is this: Wouldn't my half marathon pace be slower than a 10K pace? I think the middle section is supposed to be harder than the easy 20 at the front and the easy 15 at the back, correct?

I appreciate any advice!

Headed to healthy & fit!
