First run outside for a long while (about 3 years). Started off way too fast (7:40 pace). I was aiming for 10:00 min pace and overstimated. Burned out by first mile. Finished in 22 m 39 s

Tried to start slow and build up but couldn't switch gears for the second mile. I had to take several breaks during this run. first at 1 mile marker. Then 2 more and finally a heroic burst at the end (at least in terms of my effor). FInished with an average of 10:14/mile

I actually felt fatigued today but I pushed on. Finished first mile in 10:25 which was ok but I tried not to stop at all during the run. However, by 1.37, I was gassed. Just felt out of juice. I don't think it's my legs. Once I stop I feel like I can go for some more. I think it's a mental hurdle that I must get over. In the grand scheme of things 2 miles is not a ton of running. But, I finished the rest of the 2 miles alternating between walking and running. 

 

One thing of note is on my route there is a 0.15 stretch of road that is at 5% incline. This is always my slowest part of the run unfortunately. I hope to conquer this hill.

I bought a Garmin foreruner 35 yesterday to keep track of miles and get accurate readings. Same run as yesterday. 2 miles with 2 planned stops. Significant improvement though. Finish in 19:33 (9:45 pace). Fastest I've ran in a while. I want to be able to start slow and finish fast but as yesterday's run proved, if I start slow, I finish slower :). Can't wait to get my running legs again; maybe in a few months.

Another 2 mile run with 2 planned stops. Started out at 9min pace; should've slowed down. First mile 9:11, second mile 10:12. Finish 19:23 total time; 10 seconds faster than yesterday. Tomorrow I'm going to try to even out the splits so there's not such a huge gap. Maybe a 9:40 first mile and 10:00 second mile or vice versa.

2 miles with 2 planned stops (.6 and 1.32 miles respectively).  First mile 9:34, second mile 10:15. I tried to slow down during the first mile so I could pick up the pace second mile but I still can't get that switch to happen. I only gas out as the run goes longer. Average heart rate was higher than usual at 170bpm for most of the run.

Ran 2 miles with 2 planned stops. I extended where I would take my first planned stop from .6 miles to 1 mile mark. Finished first non stop mile at 9:31 then second mile in 10:22 with 2 breaks in between. Average Heart rate was back down today to 160

Tried a new running location at a nearby park where it seemed more even. Found a nice loop around a lake that was about .9 miles. Finished 1st mile at 9:55 (I got lost trying to find loop), took a stop then ran till 1.75, walked a few then finished last quarter mile. Averaged 10:07 pace overall. I think the heart rate monitor on my watch might've errored out. Average heart rate was 130 (can't be right). It didn't feel like 130. 2 weeks down, 24 to go for marathon in December.

Day of rest. Woke up and was heavier than I thought (could be water). I'm deciding to only weight once a week now. Don't want the anxiety :D

2 miles this morning, there was mud from the heavy rain last night and I slipped, so I decided to turn around and loop a dry area. Finished first mile in 9:26 (including my slip and fall :D). Second mile at 10:06 with one stop at the 1.83 mark. 19:32 total time. 

Decided to try out the addidas ultraboost uncaged again. The ankle support is not so great but they were a gift last june from a family member. After some research, turns out thery are good running shoes. They felt light throughout the run and I can't say whether I love them yet. I have ran in them before but it was all really slow miles on treadmill.

Woke up this morning and did not want to run :D, but run I did. I actually only had one stop in this run. Ran until 1.55 mile mark then started slowing waaay too much. Stopped for 1:30 minute then continued on. Moving time was 20:32 with second mile being slowest.
