Sigh. Yesterday’s 10 mile (20k) run was not what I expected.
Richard’s polite request: “I was hoping we could do faster than 10 min miles today.”
My not so polite response: “We will run 9 min miles today.”
At mile 4 we were right on target for 9 min miles. I felt great through mile 8 – still on target for 9 min miles. I am not sure what happend those last 2 miles, but at the end of the run my time was 1:43:17. Sigh. Once again running 10 min 20 sec miles. Someday, I will be a fast runner. Patience is not something that agrees with me.
Today is an easy 30 min recovery jog.
