>General Running>Looking for a little advice.
There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.
We are always running for the thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill, searching for the thrill of it
I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Ran my first race of the season, a 5k in 19:58 on a very hilly course. This was my first race since 2005. Had a hamstring pull and PF that basically shot the racing season for 2006. Was running my 5ks in the mid 18:30s in 2005. Any tricks to get back into sub 19 minute shape? Race was OK, but I tend to struggle with maintaining pace for the last 1/2 of my races. Try starting out slower but seem to have the same problem. My first mile usually feels good, like I'm not going out too hard. Any direction is appreciated. Thanks.
