The three miles I wanted to do at 10 min pace - and this is where I'm glad I've been running for so long.
Mile 1 - 10:01
Mile 2 - 10:01
Mile 3 - 10:02
The only time I even looked at my watch was at the mile markers. At the second mile I thought I had pressed the wrong button and my watch had stopped after mile 1. Imagine my confusion at first when I finished......
Overall it was a very good run, and I'm pleased with my progress over the last quarter. I've increased my cooldown distance to force myself into doing some slower miles throughout the week. I was noticing on my log graphs that I'd been trying to get in too many 'quick' miles. This was a good way to 'trick' myself. Right now my cooldown is .94 miles and I'm doing that at a 15 min pace. (OK now everyone can open the debate over 'junk miles') My though is: I am putting in another mile, and that 5 additional miles for the week, and less time spend sitting on my ass in front of the TV.
