Paces for half marathon plan vs marathon plan
Question, I’ve followed the Hanson’s plan for many marathons in the past and had great success. Coming back from surgery and am tackling a Half before I return to the full, so I bought the Half Marathon method book, but I’ve confused about the pace table, compared to what I had seen for the full.
Let’s say I want to run the half in 1:45, which would be an 8:01 min/mile pace. The pace table for 1:45 shows 8:23 for tempo runs (22 seconds slower than I expected) and the strength pace as 8:13, slower than race pace? Makes me question the rest of the paces in that row as well.
Should I jump down to the row that shows 8:01 as the tempo pace (the row for 1:41 Half Goal) and use those paces for my workouts?
