If you start at level pace, you feel as if you are jogging.
...reporting back after my 10M race yesterdaytargetting sub 1:20, i.e. sub-8min/miling, so hoping for 7:55ish miles with increasing effort:
7:36, 7:56, 8:03, 8:19, 7:59 for 39:53 at halfway8:00, 8:14, 8:14, 8:06, 7:32 for 1:19:59
first mile bit too quick, but felt very easy, but eased off in responsemile 4 had v.small amount uphill, so basically on track up to mile 6miles 7&8 were the problem - didn't increase the effort enough to compensate for the decreasing efficiency of the muscles/lungs - left a lot to do over the last 2 miles, but just about managed it! better finish would've been 8:10, 8:05, 8:05, 7:45still a big PB (nearly 5min improvement)now completely convinced about even/slight neg-splitting
