(quote) Edward-4511 said: Went out for a run after work. 2.1 miles in 25 minutes. Best pace to date, well under a 12 minute mile. BUT, I think I went too hard in the first mile and wore myself out. I got slower as I went on.
Next time, I want to try to go for at least 35 minutes, and not push myself so hard in the first mile. More leisurely pace.
Also want to call my local wheelchair maintenance shop -- see if I can get some new tires before the trip down to Charleston.
On my 8.8 miles yesterday, I also went out too fast, and wound-up slowing down in the middle, but was pleased that I finished strong.
A LOT of runners charge the first mile too fast. Gotta feeling you and I will get the first mile easier so we can finish strong. New tires will do wonders for you.
Tech meeting today, Vigil Holyday, and grocery shopping kept me from running, but should run the next 4 days.
