Consistency is Key
.I haven’t run a race at this pace yet, buuuuttt…I’ve been aiming to run 1000 miles this year, so I’ve been way more consistent with my running lately. Especially when you compare it to last fall, when basically by the end of December I had stopped running at all.
So when I started back up in Jan, I was running over a 10min mile. I felt sluggish and couldn’t even go for longer than a mile at a time. It felt horrible.
And the other day I ran 3 miles at sub 9 min mile pace. And by sub-9, I mean 8:57, but still! Lol
I’m just relieved to be back in the swing of things :-) And while knowing doing something consistently makes you better at it is one thing, actually seeing the results yourself is another.
Moral of the story: just keep running!
