Slow Chump
RE: Critique my Half Marathon Splits - CAN I GO FASTER?
I'm a 33 year old male. I averaged 25-30 mpw with a peak of 35miles in the months leading up to the race. I'm fond of repeat half miles at 6:00 pace with a few minutes jog rest. I hate tempos, they hurt, but managed to squeeze in quite a few 5 mile at 6:30 pace tempo runs.

Pretty low mileage overall, I've never been a high milage guy having a middle distance background. Im starting a training cycle right now for a spring marathon, I'm already hitting 30mpw, and I haven't started hard workout days yet. I'm hoping to peak at closer to 50 miles this time. I may be overly naively optimistic, but I'm hoping to coming close to breaking 1:20 this time.

Thanks for the race strategy reccomendations. Any edge will help on race day.
