Half Marathon Time/Pacing Help
So I just remembered I signed up for a (stupid) half marathon which is 4-5 weeks away. I have run a total of 1 almost 2 years ago I think. I don't really do many run races so don't have any relevant stand alone times to go off of. I think my last off the bike 5k was 19:20 and I ran about a 7 min/mile pace at my last "oly" a few weeks ago. That 7 min/mile pace was not redlining until the last stupid hill - could have likely gone a little faster if I were better motivated. My longest run of the year is probably 8-9 miles and when healthy/wife healthy enough (maybe 60% of the year) I have put in about 25 mpw.
So pulling a number out of thin air, is a sub 1:30 possible? I looked at some calculators but those are based off stand alone times and obviously assume proper training for the distance which is not going to be me. At the end of the day, I will probably pick a goal time and go for it from the gun. I don't mind if I crash and burn, but want to be somewhat realistic about it. Any thoughts/input appreciated.
