I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

in my happy pace!!

… started my morning run with no expectations, knew I’d be reigning in the pace was all. at around 3K, the plan to go 6K at the same pace, and wanted to kill it for the final 2K arriving home for my 8K run. on that 6th kilometer, wasn’t really feeling it … so I stopped, and walked a few hundred meters. now, plan B was to run ‘n gun it for 1.5K to my house. best laid plans, right? anyways, I did run hard for 1K, and I’m glad I took that break after six … I know from the runner I am, it’s much easier establishing a pace, as opposed to changing a pace! those couple of minutes rest was just what the doctor ordered. first 6K slightly under 5:00 pace … final 1K @ 4:15 … and, honestly … woulda KILLED that final 500 meters a smidgen more – just sayin’!!

  1. did i ever tell you about this t-shirt i saw that said “how can you tell if someone’s a runner? don’t worry, they’ll let you know…” 😉

  2. I know what you mean, sometimes a little rest is all it takes to rock it at the end.

    • you certainly feel a sense of rejuvenation w/ a brief rest. knowing that you only have a couple of kilometers before you reach home and are done running doesn’t hurt either, lol! 😉
