>Running 101>asphalt vs trail running
Roads were made for journeys...
I use to run a few years ago and stopped, and now I'm back running again. I noticed the diffrence in my time between the asphalt running and the trail running. My time slowed down on the trail to about 3 minutes per mile. Is this normal for trail running than the asphalt? Or do I just need to run harder than I would on the asphalt?

You are doing great! I know it's frustrating to have confusing times and distances, but you will work it all out! As someone wise said, "Run with your head not your heart." Do what you can, enjoy what you do!
But got a little discouraged with my tme.
