Prince of Fatness
2014 Goal : " Be my own Hero"
" Choose Joy"
PBs since age 60: 5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.
10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
I feel it VERY DIFFICULT to slow down. My stupid mentality thinks slow is bad, and fast equals proper running form.... dumb for sure.
Maybe the reason I'm having trouble building mileage is that I can't seem to slow down. I had no trouble running my 5k race whatsoever, but I can't seem to break through to go even 4 miles. It already feels like I'm going slow at 9:30-10:00 mm. I think it would feel like walking to go any more slowly. I will give it a shot, though.
I cannot find a 5k race around anywhere when I am planned to run one per plan. I found one the Week before though. Do you think it's okay to run it sooner or later than plan?
