Woohoo, I’m so excited about the run I had tonight! The RFG group met tonight and afterward we went to a local elementary school to run together for our prescribed 3 mile Tempo run; that means I should be running at my 5K pace. I started out feeling pretty good and I was pacing another runner that was about 20 feet in front of me. I ran for 1.25 miles before I needed to slow to a walk for a couple of minutes. I caught my breath and started running again and this time I didn’t stop to walk until I had reach 2.2 miles. I slowed one more time at 2.8 miles and then finished strong.
I used the Mapmyrun app to track tonight because I didn’t want to schedule my run/walk segments, I wanted to run for as long as I could and then walk for just a short time. My overall pace was just slightly better than my last 5K, I can’t complain about that!! 🙂
