I signed up for the 201 class because I had been running for a while even though I am not very fast. I am so slow compared to the others in the class that during the long runs, I end up running solo. I was hoping to get to know some people so I could maybe find a running buddy. I may go to the 101 group when they start doing longer run times in their class.
Last night was speed workout. We did a ladder workout: 200, 400, 600, 400, 200. It was on a track and the first 200 I paced myself for the wrong corner to stop at, meaning I started out way too fast.
I had to struggle with feeling self consciousness because I was always to the halfway point when every one finished. But, hey, I am doing this for me and not them. I was happy with my times for the laps and that is what is important.
