My runs have not been very good this week.  Not sure what my problem is.  I had a really hard time running outside yesterday.  I much prefer trail running to running around in the neighborhood.  But I don’t like going in the woods alone.  Now that the girls are back in school, I don’t see many trail runs in my future.

So yesterday after I got them both on their buses, I hit the streets.  It was not good.  During the first interval, I felt like I was running in slow motion.  I think it has is because I have been mostly running on the treadmill the last couple of weeks.  But I chalked it up to my usual first mile feelings.  It tends to take me a couple of miles to get comfortable.  Then when the interval ended and my training app told me my pace, I realized why.  I was running at 9:37 average.  Um, I am barely down into the 10’s usually.  This faster pace drained me.  Then second interval was longer in time and I just never found my groove.

I guess I need to start checking my pace while I run.  I have never done that before and I don’t know if it is something I really want to deal with on my phone app constantly.  It may be time to invest in a watch that does it for me.  Maybe the Garmin Forerunner 10 would be a good one to start with…
