"The work of art which I do not make, none other will ever make."
According to my Garmin Training Center, I am finally entering the "slow run" zone :)
Today was a 4K tempo run and I wanted to really try and push it (being a little high on prednisone and all). During the last K I felt like I was slowing down and, believe me, when I reached the 4K mark, I could not have continued another meter! Although I recuperated quite quickly....and
YES, today I did a real tempo run and came in for the first time ever with an under 10min/mile pace overall (9:56)...that's 6.13min/Km. Plus, although I thought my last K would be slower, I actually improved consistently (6.25; 6.11; 6.09; and 6.06)! Prednisone or not, it's still my body that is doing this...and I'm pretty proud of myself :)
Just wanted to share...now off to yoga.
