New goal half marathon

Dear TheEd
after 2 weeks of easy running and gaining less then 1kg body weight I am tomorrow starting 3 cycles which will end with a half marathon. I have no PB on a half marathon yet.
With my current form (3'56 10k) I think I should get 1h35 'easy' and aim to go under the 1h30?
Am I correct to keep doing the same cycle with targetting 3'55 2k sessions, doing 'normal' long runs of 1h30 which are usually around 18k for me, and that the half marathon pace has to be 4'06 (=10k pace + 10 sec?)
Kind regards,

Hi tallon, nice to see your development coming along so nicely.

there are a few ways to race the half marathon distance, which we can discuss as you get closer to the event

however, in preparation for the distance and especially if you have the 5 x 2k session under control, you could consider increasing your long run to 20k. Ideally, you should be looking to develop towards 25k over time, to gain the benefits from aerobic development. We can do this in steps, but good to mention now.

4.10 per k, should give you a decent 21k time

on we go

ps.. thank you for the donation, always appreciated
