Today I hit my first mile in 14:20. Not since pre ulcer have I had a time under 14:30. I dunno what it was about today but it took every bit of willpower to even bother and I ended up beating my best time!
I think the warmup time before starting the apps is worth it. That way I don’t feel this pressure or disappointment when I finally hit that first mile. Now, I need to get closer to a 10-minute mile! 😀 I don’t even feel sore now! I love the days where you feel like all your training is paying off.
