Selling Myself Short
I heard having a Garmin might change my training. Well, apparently I have been selling myself short (at least to myself). A year ago I had a hard time running a 12:00/mile. Through training for my October half-marathon my times naturally got faster and I was happy when I was running 10:30/mile. Well, on my outdoor runs (all two of them since getting my Garmin) all my times have been under 10:00/mile. My best, and most relaxed, mile came during a 5 mile run at 9:10/mile. WOW, big difference. Here I thought I was running almost 90 seconds/mile slower. There is no reason why I can’t break 30 minutes when I run a 5K race again.
