Do you use a small rest between those tempo kms or are they consecutive?
I used to do 3*1000m consecutively, then i bumped it to 3-4*1.5K but i do use 2 minutes rest in between.
Target training paces (min/km), calculated from 5K PR 22:49 :
Easy run : 5:48
Tempo run : 4:50
VO2-max run :4:21
Speed form run : 4:02

---

it's the biggest trick in the run game.. go slow to go fast. it doesn't make sense until it smacks you in the face and you're like ....... wtf?

that's a steady run, no breaks. i log the splits to track how i lose energy over time, which would not happen if i were better at pacing (or in better shape, lol). i did walk for about 200m after finishing the 6 km tempo and then jogged very slowly the rest of the way home.

for faster work i include a rest period. the 800s i've been doing include 90s rest between reps.

longest i'll run before the half marathon in two weeks. felt pretty good. also, brought some dates and kosher salt and started eating them 1-2 at a time every couple of km, starting halfway through. tired now but okay.

march 6

- run 57:37, 9.24 km

yesterday

- ski x 5 hours
spur of the moment thing. great conditions (for mid-atlantic, anyway): mid-20s/~-5 degrees and there was about 3 inches of fresh snow. took a little while to shake the rust off but had such a good time, just with gf. she's such a good athlete, this was her third or fourth time skiing, ever, and she only fell once, right at the beginning. she can't go very fast but didn't want to anyway, just kept control. totally worth the five hours of driving each way.

today

- run 5-5.5 km, slowish

- half marathon race in 1:34:20 (watch), 1:35:28 (chip)
watch buzzed about 200m before the finish line, i figure just because of weaving and stuff during the race. i'm okay with the time: it was my first time racing anywhere close to this distance so i didn't really know what to expect, and also my training hasn't been all that consistent. it was more fun than i expected it to be. 5k suuuuucks to run, the back half and especially the final mile just hurt. apart from one wicked hill, this was never uncomfortable. i guess running for this long necessarily means running in the aerobic zone and so i got tired but that was all. it was fun to pick people out to try to keep pace with or pass as the race went on.

official results aren't posted yet but unofficially i placed 476th out of 10,655. top-500 was a secondary goal so that's good.

official finish is 528th, damn it. 72nd out of 936 in my age bracket (male 35-39).

fiancee finished just ahead of me relative to her age bracket (female 35-39). so that's another new goal, beat her against our cohorts!

we both signed up for another half in september. let's see if i can train more consistently over the summer. i think if i can really get up to 30 miles a week and be solid with my tempo runs i could push down close to 1:30. it's on a flatter course, although likely will be pretty hot. certainly warmer than last weekend.

Congratulations, great time.
I also agree, 5 and 10K are far more exhausting, half is more tiring overall but the... tire load is isodistributed, peak tire feeling is always lower.
Also gotta love how good this follow someone a bit faster works at races. Ive done it in 5K and 10Ks but it lasts too little, in my half i was following a dude for about an hour lol.
Target training paces (min/km), calculated from 5K PR 22:49 :
Easy run : 5:48
Tempo run : 4:50
VO2-max run :4:21
Speed form run : 4:02
