I have been thinking about doing a post about this for a little while and so when I got a comment the other day about my pace, I decided to write this.Today’s run by the way was 8 miles at an 8:16 pace.
I have not been reading running blogs for very long, probably less than a year. One thing I have noticed is the variety of different paces that are out there. One of the best things about running blogs is to read about other people’s training. Their advice, things that work and don’t work, and different methods of training. I have also realized that everybody’s “slow run”, or “speedwork” is different. We all have different abilities and goals. Some people enjoy running for exercise, and some as a way to clear their head. Some people love racing others can’t imagine paying to run. We are all different. I remember reading a running blog and her “slow day” was a 7:30 pace and I was thinking that I must resemble a turtle then! Yesterday I mentioned my slow pace being around 8:50. For me that is slower and more comfortable, but if for you that is fast, then that is good too.
I love running for the feeling of accomplishment, so whether you run a 6:30 mile or a 9:30 mile, whether you PR or don’t race much…..just enjoy the run and be proud of yourself for getting out there! 🙂
I found this in my little running book and it made me laugh outloud!
“Convincing sane people to pay for the privilege of running is the greatest scam perpetrated on mankind since bottled water. Is it any wonder the two often show up together?”
We also are getting ready for the 4th by tye-dying t-shirts!!! So excited!!!! I will give you our float update tomorrow along with a bunch of pictures!!!
So excited to see how they turn out!
