I ran a 19:49 at a fairly flat course with pretty good pacing. Started out and didn't sprint because I don't like to. Ran 6:15 for the first mile and was 12:42 at the 2 mile. I know I could get a little better at pacing but that doesn't really account for a 30 second deficit.
What does this say about me? Do I run workouts too hard, do I not push enough in races? I threw up after I finished so I just have no idea. I was running with someone up until about 2.75 miles but then couldn't hold on and he ended up getting 19:39.
You lack basic endurance, you need to work more on that and improve the lactate threshold, to get better stamina. Your lactate clearance system is weak, you have no rest breaks in races. This is why your race results arenÂ´t in line with the workout you shared.
