I ran 2.26 miles in 31 minutes at an average pace of 13:43. Below are my splits from today compared to the ones from Monday.
|Mile 1 Pace||14:16||12:44|
|Mile 2 Pace||13:28||13:41|
|Pace to Finish|
I like this much better than Monday's where I started so fast that I finished the first mile in 12:44 but that made the entire run more difficult. This pace, with a slow start and the gradual constant increase, worked much better and my pace was not affected that much. I also ran stitch free!! Except for having to wake up so damn early, I really enjoy morning runs much better.
I only have 1 more run on Friday before graduation! But, as someone else's put it in their blog, that is for the GED version =P I can run 30 minutes straight as the program prescribes, but not 3 miles (though I haven't tried but I am not going to push myself that much that fast). I plan to continue increasing the distance by 1/4 mile each week until my next 5k on 6/14 where I plan to run the entire thing. That will be my graduation ceremony :)
