SlowKoala, I'm another one who finds it hard to get anywhere near race pace in training. I also find my paces are often a bit slower than expected at the start of the plan but it soon comes together after a few weeks. It's too early to start panicking about stuff like that.
Scott , just noticed your picture and it looks a lot like the athletics track I run past nearly every day in Salisbury.
