That’s it?! I shaved a lousy second off? Seriously?
Now, there is some hope for me. During this run, I charted my 5k time: 38:20. That’s a pace of 9:12. Not bad. But then my last almost mile took me 9:49 for a pace of 10:26. That’s obviously where I need to work. I need to learn how to hit this whole negative split thing. So that’s my goal for tomorrow. I’d like to beat 9:29, but more than that, I’d like to have a negative split. In order to check my success, I’ll be timing the first 2 miles, and then timing the second half–and the second half ranges from 2.02 to 2.04 miles…but that will be close enough.
Oh, and I had a crazy cramp this evening in my left big toe and calf. Painful. Gotta remember to drink my water and eat my banana after my run!
