Try running the earlier miles a little slower, so that you have some oomph left for the last three.
The overall pace should then remain about the same.
Thanks for the reply guys, it looks like there is no substitute for putting in the miles to improve endurance. So far I have been using a self created training plan of 3 runs a week, which has served me well so far. These are:
Monday 7mile tempo run (about 48mins)
wednesday 7 miles easy ( includes hills, about 52 minutes)
Friday 12 miles easy (about 1hr 28mins)
After posting a time of 1:35 at Reading this year I have set myself a goal of 1:30 next year. My first thought in achieving this goal was that being able to maintain a constant pace throughout would shave of a couple of minutes and be a step towards my ultimate target.
