This was my first 4 miler with a sub 10:00 minute average pace!! Yay me!! I was fast, like a rocket.......maybe not like a rocket, maybe like a Pinto.....
but faster than normal. I have been so proud of my negative splits lately but today's run was just weird. My pacing was off! I was running with 2 other runners, one faster than me (McSpeedy)and one slower than me (McTired)! Kind of a weird place to be. I was pushing to stay up with McSpeedy and making sure to slow down a bit so that McTired wasn't too far behind, but overall, I ran faster than normal for an "easy" run ( non-race)!!!
4.02 miles - 39:46 - average pace - 9:54
Not sure what happened at mile 3????
What do you guys do when you run with other runners who have a different pace than you? Do you do your own thing and let them go ahead or fall behind or do you change your pace to match theirs??? I struggle with this sometimes.......
