As part of my running training, I wanted some simple information on different running splits for different distances – I’m sure there are various sources for this on the web, but didn’t find anything quite summarised the way I wanted, so I decided just to post to my own blog, here.
Above, is a short summary, with overall time for selected paces at each distance – more complete details for each distance are set out below, in the remainder of this post. Feel free to make suggestions for alternative/additional details or different presentation.
My last blog post on running was “Hints and tips before your first marathon“.

First up, these thoughts came to me after my first (and so far only) marathon (last year, Frankfurt marathon: 3:43.36). I don’t claim to be an expert in marathon running, nor are the ideas below guaranteed to work for everyone – they are things that I did (and sometimes didn’t do) that I felt resulted in me completing the marathon inside my goal (sub-4 hours) without too much pain (or at least, I survived).

It’s a bit late for me to make my first posting about running. Last year I started training for the Frankfurt marathon, and completed the marathon (3:43.36) on 26 October.
I hadn’t planned entering the marathon, but was cornered by two friends at Liz Powell’s birthday BBQ party who had signed up that day and suggested I join them. Being rather out of shape after having recently completed my MBA I decided that it was indeed the right thing to do (the few beers I’d had that evening already helped with the decision making …).
