After miserably failing my week 6 run 3, I've got to ask if anyone else is having problems with their pace.
It seems like my 'natural' running speed - the pace at which my body feels most comfortable running - is a lot faster than I can handle for these distance runs. It becomes really difficult for me to keep it going past 5-10 minutes.
However, when I try to slow it down, I get incredible pain in my legs, especially my ankles, which also makes it incredibly hard to keep going. Could it still be a shoe problem, even though I don't feel any pain running at a higher speed?
I really don't know how to solve this problem, and I'm feeling very defeated at the moment - especially after giving up on today's run after 12 and a half minutes. Does anyone have any words of wisdom?
