Now that I've actually done a mile time test (and I wasn't even going all out!) I can actually do the Galloway Magic Mile Thing.
Mile Time: 7:58
5k Pace: 8:31 min/mile (26:24) <--I'm going to test this this weekend!
10k Pace: 9:10 min/mile (56:48)
Half-Marathon Pace: 9:34 min/mile (2:05:14)
Marathon Pace: 10:21 min/mile (4:31:21)
Marathon Training Pace: 12:21 min/mile (5:23:45)
I think I'm aiming for a 5:30 or less marathon. That goal will most likely change as the marathon gets closer since it's so far away but it's nice to have a goal in mind to work toward. I'd like to say my goal is to "just finish" but unfortunately the Chicago marathon has a 6:30 time limit and at 6:30 CLOCK time the course shuts down. Since it's probably going to take close to a half hour to cross the start line, that only leaves 6 hrs before the course shuts down. If I'm aiming for 5:30, there's not a lot of wiggle room! Eeeks!
