Half-marathon training
Week six, day three

Two miles around the track again today, and I did something odd – I went slower.

I’m slow already, but I’ve noticed a tendency to start out at a pace I have no hope of maintaining and then plod my way through when I have to slow down. Apparently, that’s not the best way to get through an endurance event so I purposefully started at a slow jog.

The first mile was still no fun, but overall it was much easier! And what do you know, I finished in the same amount of time as I would have starting quickly. So, I guess there is something to that whole tortoise/hare thing.

Meanwhile, come buy squares for the Cowboys/Bears game!
