It's just a target I have set myself but to train so hard for so long and not hit that target would be tough. I've stopped smoking, eat completely differently and made a few other sacrifices for this so even though I will become good at this distance over a few years this time seems important to me. I will be doing a couple of 10 mile races before the half
I have been running now for a few months and only gave up smoking about 3 weeks ago. I'm looking to run a half marathon in may next year in 1:30. My current times are 10k 49m and 10 miles 1:21 I think my current pace is around 8:15 ish. Is my first half marathon in under 1:30 unrealistic? I'm prepared to train hard.
