New "comfy" pace!! (Read 1153 times)

    Heh...in HS I was a sprinter (100 and 200). NOW (at age 34) I have endurance, but at heart I'm still a sprinter. I wish there were track meets for grown-ups. I think now I'd love to try my hand (heh, feet) at the 400 or maybe even 800. Smile k
    I think there ARE track meets for adults (we're adults? Big grin) .... look around, talk to your friendly local running store!
    2009: BQ?

      She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

        I tried track one semester (fight with my lax coach), and I. Was. Horrible. I ran the mile and did the triple jump ... both HORRIBLY. What's cool though is that my fastest mile in high school was like 7:14, and I can now run a 10K at a 7:39 pace Big grin

          See...and I think my best mile (just goofing around in PE) was ~8 minutes. Now I don't think I could pull off anything faster than 9. k
