Finding my "happy pace"



Well kids I think I've done it.
I have found my pace.

 I ran 4.02 miles in 46:52.

Is this stellar?
No
Am I happy with it? 
Thrilled


The best part of this run was
EVERYTHING

The weather was perfect.
I had no stitches in my sides.
I focused on my breathing and pacing the entire time.
It all just came together for me.
Pitbull blasting in my ears didn't hurt either. 


I am glad I have chosen to do all of my training outdoors. Not only do I find that running on a "dreadmill" boring, it teaches you nothing about pace.



The treadmill paces you.
Running outdoors you learn to pace yourself.

That is an important lesson to learn, especially as a beginner.





I am really looking forward to the cooler, fall weather.
I see a lot of runs in my future.

I'm sorry, am I reading my own words correctly?
I am looking forward to more runs?

 
Just like Jerry Springer, I would like to share a "Final Thought" with all of you.
 
-I LOVE the Nike+ running app.
-You do not need a Nike+ adapter, it tracks your runs via GPS.
-It keeps track of your paces, distances, calories, etc.
 
Go download it, if you don't have it already.
DALE!

Okay that wasn't so much a "thought" as it was a friendly suggestion...that you better follow.
Same difference, right?
