Thanks all. It's soooo hard to slow down. It's just not comfortable to go slower than a 9:0 to 9:15 pace or so. At nthat pace, I'm not breathing that heavy - i could carry on a conversation. My tempos are usually ~ 8:30 or less. My 7.5 mile race pace was 7:47. BUT, I did get a new pair of Mizuno Wave Inspires and they feel much better. I was overpronating a little. Needed a bit more stability than pure neutrals. Two short runs so far and no issues. This week, I'll go all easy and lead up to a long run on the weekend.
Paul, I'm in lovely Woburn, MA.
