Hi Smair, most people will find that they can maintain a faster pace in a race than they can do in training, due to the adrenaline and people around them.  Have a go at a couple of shorter distances (e.g. 5k or 10k) and if see if you can maintain or beat that pace in these events.

Everyone is different so the variance between training and race paces does depend on the individual and their level of training.

probably not this good

But if you're prepared to patiently build up, and put a stack of work in, you can be pretty good.

Aren't you the chap who wanted to be a boxer as well though?
