I'm not crying about this because by god I just ran for 30 minutes straight today for the first time! I had a look online at a program to find out how far I had gone and I ran 3.487 (roughly)k today. Well, I was happy first of all that I managed to run the full 30 minutes, but now I am starting to think about how can I make myself run faster? I'm basically jogging but intentionally going only at my own pace so I can complete the runs. Maybe it's the music? The final song on week 9 completely shocked my system in a good way actually making me want to dance...which seemed to lengthen my stride for some reason.
I know that after the next two runs I will graduate and I have never felt so amazingly good about myself. I know I'll keep running til I can make a full 5K without stopping...but does anyone have any suggestions on how to pick up your own pace?
