Yesterday I ran my 4.25 in 40 minutes. That came to 9.25 minute mile. I'm still trying to figure out this running thing. I knew I started out to fast because I was "dying." I had to walk more often, but i would do it for a shorter distance. My daughter said I need to work on pacing. I agree!
She mentioned the mental toughness of running and that it's harder than the physcial aspect. She told me to NOT stop running. Even if my pace is so slow that I'm barely moving my feet, she said her coach told her to keep "running."
Today I'm going to go out and practice that. I WILL "run" the hills in my route and work on pacing. I was quite proud of myself yesterday, though!
