So here's how it goes-
I have a training plan on my fridge. I sorta follow it. I had some speed work on Tuesday which I replaced with 4 speedy miles. No biggie. But then there are days like today, where before I run I formulate a plan...5-6 miles s.l.o.w.e.r. Nothing fancy. Then I go out and totally BLOW my plan.
I have this thing where I can't stand to hear my pace go down during a run. Start off slow and keep it slow=fine. Start of speedy and then slow down=traumatizing. Makes a lot of sense huh?
So my girl (Nike app lady) told me I was running a 9:09 within the first mile. NOT THE PLAN JOHNSON. With the muggy weather, I knew it wouldn't be fun keep up the 9:09 pace for 5+ miles. I tried to will myself to slow down...9:07, 9:05, 9:02...what the heck? So I ended up with 4 miles at a 9:02 pace. Not what I was going for.
I need to work on my pace. That's my goal after my 10K next Saturday. Totally pumped about that by the way!
