Planned marathon pace

I have decided that I am going to set a (hopefully) realistic goal for my first marathon. I hope to finish in 4:30. This may be a little optimistic, but that is my goal.

To finish in 4:30, I will need to run a 10:18 pace. This is a little faster than the pace I ran in the LV Half Marathon, but I expect to be in a lot better shape for this race than the last one.

As part of preparing for the race, I'm going to make Wednesdays my race pace day. This will hopefully get me used to this pace for longer and longer runs. This is a modification I'm making to the Higdon program.
