This was a Recovery Run, so 10 minutes at an easy pace.
During this run, I learned something about myself and my body. I learned that my body wants to run at a 9:00 pace but my legs can't sustain that just yet. I had to force myself to slow it down to a 9:45 pace, just so I could run the entire 10 minutes.
Along with learning this, I also came to the realization that I am really out of shape! It's bad, and I feel bad. I understand it takes time to get back into cardiovascular shape, and I'm putting the time in to do just that. The good news is my body has responded well so far, no injuries or major fatigue. I know I'm just starting but so far, so good!
