So true. Now that I only run trails and mountain races, my performance expectations are more like - "Wow! I finished and didn't hyperventilate! Yay!".

rules of success*

9. Run at race pace
Spend time practicing your goal speed during training and it will feel like your body's natural rhythm come race day. Mentally, logging dozens of miles at race pace will help you feel more confident when the starting gun goes off.
____________
*Amby Burfoot (from Runnerís World) suggests following these bedrock principles to achieve your goals
