Re-evaluating my training pace

480px-speed_limit_60_signsvg

Using a “theoretical” 7’01” mile race (based on only being able to run a 7’19” mile interval), I did a gut check on my pacing.  Yep, I’m running too fast.  Shocking.  I’m going to have to force myself to run at 6.0 mph on the treadmill.

  1. 6.0 will feel slooow for you. smart training isn’t always fun training. just relax and enjoy the run. unless it is on a treadmill. in case of treadmill, just remember you’re making yourself stronger. there is no fun on a treadmill
