Today I went running for the first time in a couple of weeks. I have been biking and swimming but not running. I was just too lazy to get up to swim this AM but I needed to do something so run it was. I covered 3 miles and my Forerunner made me crazy for at least 2.5 of them. I got off to a great start but the next time I looked down the pace said I was running a 14-something mile. No way! I ran faster and it barely got down to 12-something. I stopped, breathed and started up again and the pace dropped slowly from 22-something to 11-something which still didn’t seem right. I finally quit looking at the pace and looked at the total time and distance, instead. Clearly the pace calculation was off. Ultimately I ran 3 miles in 32:29 with the breakdown looking like this:
Mile 1 – 10:13
Mile 2 – 11:11
Mile 3 – 11:02
I’m so tired of being slow. I guess I’ll have to wait until my bike ride is over to start really logging the miles and getting my pace in order, annoying and frustrating as that is.
