My 5.5 miler today
Something strange happen this morning. Sometimes when I'm running my hardest to pick up the pace and I look down on my Garmin, I know sometimes it takes a little time to register the pace, but when I look down I'm going my slowest. Then there are the times that I look, when I'm going or I believe I'm going at a very easy pace and I see 7.30 to 8.45 and when I realize this I try to keep it going because I'm liking what I see. When the mile split do finally register though its anywhere between 9.-10 so I'm not holding the pace very long.
But the weirdest s thing happened this morning on my 5.5 mile run. My 4th mile split registered at 7:38 actually the split was 1.17 miles for 6:32 pace . I'm still thinking about it and wondering how it happen. I know at one point all I was thinking about was getting home by a certain time. I really wouldn't want to run fast all the time during my training runs but it sure would be worth it to get my pace back averaging 9 mins miles on my training runs. I'm working on it and have been since last week. I'm slowly getting back there. And when I finally stopped the timer and reset the run my average pace was 10:12 for the 5.5 miles.
