I didn’t miss you.
Sigh. I ran this morning. Here are the stats:
Distance: 2 miles
Pace: 15:20 min/mil
Temp: 24 degrees
So..my slow average pace is back. I have to admit, I REALLY liked that 11+ min/mil that I had in Reno. I know that it’s an average, but I was running faster on my run on Saturday. I’m not going to lie, I’m sort of surprised to see this pace. I felt like I was running faster. I realized that I am never going to get a completely accurate pace or distance using my current technology (mapmyrun, my cell phone and now my Nike+).
People who have and use the Nike+ ipod, did you calibrate yours? I haven’t, as I found it to be pretty accurate to a course that I “knew” the length of. I think I’m just looking for reasons that I was So.Much.Slower today. Did running with my Dad really make that much of a difference? It must have. Running is so mental for me, and I think this really proves it.
Ugh. I am trying not to be frustrated and annoyed.
On a positive note, this was my first run in my new shoes, and they are phenomenal. One of my New Years Resolutions need to be, Replace Shoes On Time, EVERY TIME.
