Second Week of Running Class - My Imaginary Winning the Race
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Assignment was to run for 40 minutes. I succeeded! .
Again I was lagging behind the rest of the class; but I do not care about that because I am not competing against any of them. My competitors are myself and the clock.
We were told to turn around at 20 minutes. The 20 minute mile mark for me was 1.75 miles. I turned around and realized I was now the leader of the pack. Hey! My imagination went wild - I was winning the race, all other runners were way behind me.
All in all, it was a good run. I kept looking at my Garmin Forerunner to check my pace and noticed that I seem to slow down mid-run. I think that is something I'll need to work on as I do these distance runs.
My total run distance was 3.54 miles in 40 minutes
