Hello -- I have been away from spark people tooooooo long. I am still running, and trying to eat right, but it seems that I am always too busy to get the needed support.
Anyway -- this thread caught my eye. I too have been running a few years. I had one 5K where I ran it in 30 min, but that was when I was running with my 24yr old son (who so happens to be a triathalete)! He was my 'pace rabbit' and I did so much better. Without him, my natural pace time is a 12 min mile ... regardless of distance. I have done 5k's and a 10 miler, both were at 12 min mile.
I can run mile repeaters at 11 min pace, sometimes a 10 min ---- but that is on a good day.
I agree that is important to just get out there and be moving, so I try not to dwell on the time. However, it would be nice to see SOME improvement! Thoughts?
