Prince of Fatness
2015 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.
One day at a time
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?
