Last week, I finally got back in to my running! I can really tell that I haven't been consistent with training when looking at my pace.
On Tuesday, I completed an out-and-back run. I focused on negative splits for each mile. Here's what they looked like:
- Mile 1: 10:42
- Mile 2: 10:08
- Mile 3: 11:25
I turned Thursday in to Treadmill Thursday! I got on the treadmill for a 3 mile run using intervals. I ran 4 miles at 6.0, followed by 1 minute at 5.0. Here's what it looked like including the warm-up and cool down.
Knowing that my half marathon is 6 days away, I think the theme of this race is going to be slow and steady! I still want to finish strong, which means I'm really going to need to focus on starting out at a pace I can maintain throughout. I'm going to practice that on my short runs this week and see how it goes!
Question for you: How do you determine your goals for a race?
I usually have a goal in mind beforehand, but in this case, I need to alter that goal based on how my body is doing right now!
