Running Diary (13)
OK so this morning I went out at my usual time of 7 am and ran for 6 miles. It was quite cold and the floor was still very icy. I was trying to push the pace during the half and I did start to feel at the end. I ran the first 3 miles in 25 mins (8.3 min/mile) and the 6 miles in 51 mins (8.5 min/mile) so although slowing down a tad (which I expect) the pace is quite steady. The next stage is to push the mileage up and keep the general 8.3-8.5 min/mile pace.
My next goal is to run 8 miles in 68 mins (1hr 8min) as this would still be an avg 8.5 min/mile.
