Practice makes perfect

The most thing I did while I was running is calculation.
I would calculate how much time I needed to complete the
training, and what is the finish time that I would complete
my next marathon.

I completed my second longest run for the year: 18 miles
with finish time of 2:23:31. This is equivalent to the average
pace of 7:55. If I used this pace to continue and finish the
marathon, the finish time would be 3:27:34, not bad.
And considering that I ran the first two miles on slower
pace, I would finish the next race around 3:20 to 3:25.

But my coach said that based on my 10k race finishing time
of 43:28, I can finish my half race with 1:36:00 and my marathon
with 3:19: 57. I would be very happy if I could do that. So let's see how I can do with the next half marathon in 2 weeks. Can I finish it 1:36? This is important to me.

For the Marathon training, there are three words: adaption, control and cruise. My muscle should be adapted with the speed and intense
for each of the different workout; and for the first a few miles, I should control my speed and not running too fast; then cruise for the next a few miles until mile 18, and then run faster till the end. And it all needs practice to make it "perfect".
