Well kids I think I've done it.
I have found my pace.
I ran 4.02 miles in 46:52.
Is this stellar?
Am I happy with it?
The best part of this run was
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.
Okay that wasn't so much a "thought" as it was a friendly suggestion...that you better follow.
Same difference, right?
