Ok so I graduated and went on to use the runkeeper app to go on to do 10k, I started that last week. Yesterday the plan said to run 4 miles. I did, very very very slowly ( lol, it took me near on an hour!!! ..the shame!! ) anyway...something happened during my last mile and a half/2 miles. I started running with barely any effort, it was truly stunning! I've always struggled with the first 10 mins or so of a run and pick up after that a bit but this was something else completely. I'm really hoping this wasn't a one off feeling because it was great. I'm wondering now if I push myself to run faster at the beginning of my runs rather than my very wary slow starts if I will reach this feeling quicker or will I just fail? Now I'm running longer distances ( though 4 miles I'm sure to most won't be considered long lol ) I would love to reach that feeling quicker than 2 miles in, any thoughts will be greatly appreciated!
