More pacing problems

Headed out for a 35-minute run and ran out of gas after the first mile again.  It seems so nice when I’m running fast, but then I just poop out and spend the rest being a drippy miserable hot and tired mess.  Maybe I should start enforcing a slower pace? My phone only tells me how fast I’m going every 5 minutes, and it’s hard to see.

But I guess this is my strategy now: run more, don’t worry about running better. Just get out there and do it, no matter how much of a mess it is.

The pool at my complex is finally open weekdays, but it’s closed on Mondays– and that’s the day I work at home.  I guess I can shuffle my schedule around to get some swims in, either during the day or in the evening.

    Good luck! Battling some pacing issues myself lately. Not sure why all of a sudden…odd, but then, it gives me something to focus on. LOL

    I hear ya, I have experienced the same issue. I would head out and feel great the first 10 minutes, but progressively I would get slower and by the 30min mark I would be walking, and not walking quickly. :) I had to get a GPS so I could manage my pace. It helped me figure out the pace I could maintain for 30 – 45 minutes comfortably. My first GPS was kinda pricey, but I know they are more affordable then they used to be. If I don’t take the GPS now, I just start out way slower than I think is necessary for the first 10 minutes. But if I’m tired? Forget all of the above!
