I thought I was faster...
So in my mind I used to be fast..well not fast fast, but pretty fast for me. Then I visited http://www.athlinks.com/default.aspx Athlinks gathers up all of your race info that is posted online. So I registered for free last night and started to gather some of my races. My first race was in 2008. I thought I ran a 10 min. mile..turns out is was 10 but the ten was followed by a 26 (not bad for the first race). I was also doing some crazy workout competition and was working out for hours a day so I was really in shape. Then the competition ended and so did my 10 minute miles. Then in my mind I stayed at that 10 min something pace..turns out I must have been dreaming..I am really more of a 12 min mile runner. WHAT?!? I know it shocked me too! Well at least I haven't lost a lot of my run time. I am
much slower at longer distances, but it is not as bad as I had previously thought. I am not that far off of my average. I am not sure if that is good or bad. lol. Ok my goal is to get back down in the 10's.
