Had two pretty good runs today. Must admit it wasn’t easy, but I persevered. My 4K was sub 18 minutes, which is always a good thing, but as I said, I really had to fight to get it. After walking/light jogging, and nearing my 1 mile run starting point, I said to myself, just run all six fractions evenly/equally (or, at least try to), and see what happens. Normally, for the mile … I start sprinting like a bat outta hell, trying to hang on (lung burning survive I mean, lol) till the very end. I’m thrilled I changed my strategy, I ran the mile … and, I’ll be honest – I felt as if I was jogging (at a quick pace albeit) it … and I STILL only missed my PR by 12 seconds!! One day when I’m feeling stronger, will approach my 1mile run exactly the same way as today, and I know I’ll def PR. I’m still experimenting/learning new/different things with running. And don’t forget y’all, I’m a newbienovice to the game … I’m a greenrunner, lol!
