So I had a relatively short 5 hour shift at work, which is a nice change from 12 hours and split shifts, so I took the opportunity and the lengthening of the Scottish summer to 7 days, to do run 2 of this week. Found the 5 minutes difficult at the start again. I think perhaps I struggle to contain my pace, as after that I do well for the rest. But for some reason, in my last 5 minute run, I got a second wind and picked up the pace. I felt like I could've gone longer as well. I averaged 5mph but the last stint I managed a pace of 6.29 min/ Km. good for me. Also felt I was more consciously aware of breathing out for longer.
Do others find this? Every run has been the same, the second half I do so much better but I don't feel like I'm doing anything different. Is my body taking a while to kick in or is it maybe a pace thing? Should I perhaps do a longer warm up?
