Catching Up on My Runs for Early November

Eight days into November and I have three runs for the month!  Of course the first three days of the month I spent doing prison ministry, so that does count as something more important than running to me. 

So far for this month I have run on Sunday the 4th, Monday the 5th and Wednesday the 7th.  Here are the details for those runs.

I decided to make this a speed run instead of a long run.  I will be running another 5K this Saturday and I needed to see what my pace was right now.  On shorter runs, those under 3.5 miles, I tend to pace myself faster and I needed a bench line to see what to set a PR bar at.

I think that I will be able to get close to my goal of running a sub 30 minute 5K during this next race.  It'll be close but I think I can do it.

My next two runs for this month, and this week have been longer runs.  Both have been over 5 miles and both have been in just about one hour in duration.  I'm thinking that in the next three weeks or so I'll be moving on to even longer runs.

I have noticed that when I do a long run, well, long for me anyway, I tend to stay on pace for an average 11:30 mile.  I'm not sure if that is a great pace or not; I'll have to look at that, but I am happy with that pace so far.  It won't win me any races, but I think it's a respectable pace for a 248 pound guy who's only been running for 4 months!

Till next time, thanks for reading.

Have a great rest of the day!
