I ran 4.5 miles today. According to my Garmin, I ran the first 3.1 miles in 34 minutes, averaging 11:33 minute miles, which is 6 minutes faster than my 5k race I ran in October. I finished my run at 52 minutes with an average again of 11:33 minute miles. My fastest pace was 9:39, I never imagined I could run that fast and I don't know at what point in the run I was there but I'm so excited!
I'm a very slow runner and staying between 12 and 13 minute miles was as fast as I thought I could run so to see these numbers is fantastic for me.
I've been running with my Garmin for almost 2 months now and I'm so glad I have it. My runs are so much more fun with it and I love to see the positive changes in my running.
