Does you HM have a sweep time? Are you following a running schedule? Galloway has a 19 week program which is when I would recommend that you start messing around with paces, except instead of 19 weeks out, maybe do 22-24, so you can repeat weeks as necessary. Starting now is probably overkill (if you are doing a HM almost a year from now per your previous thread).

I just completed my second HM this weekend. Beyond a 10K, I plan on just doing some shorter speed work runs over the next few months - 3-5 miles 2-3 times per week and then start on my training plan for my next half when it's time. Maybe just work on tweeking run/walk intervals, etc. right now. I did a lot of long running last summer unnecessarily, and it really burned me out prior to my first HM in December.

I see a Track Shack bib in your pic - they have Galloway run groups for the area's most popular HMs (I'm also an Orlando-area runner). Maybe consider one of those? Track Shack is great for advice, too. I also like Fit2Run and Front Running Sports (Lake Mary). You can do a Galloway app or Higdon app for training, too.

I like what FUTBOLREF said in your other thread, go back wards from when your half is and plan accordingly. Personally, I think that your half is pretty far away to worry about this right now. (January right?) Keep doing what you are doing for awhile and increase little by little until Summer and then see where you stand and where to begin your training times for the half.
Enjoy yourself in the meantime! Keep running!

I have been running 3-4 miles 3 times a week at my 5K pace which is 13:30 per mile. Galloway method that I use says my training pace for a half should be 19:30 mi. As I start preparing, when do I switch to the slower training pace?
