There is the evidence. The numbers are as follows:
- Total miles: 5.04 miles
- Total time: 1:21
- Average pace: 16:15
- Fastest Pace: 8:56
I started out slow, just shuffling along because I wanted to run all or most of it. So I shuffled. After about 15 minutes I found my pace. That pace that is perfect. The one you can run forever. That held for awhile until I started hitting the hills. Those were tough and I ended up walking quite a few. But the important part is I covered 5 miles, I ran far more than I walked, and I feel pretty good. Marathon training is off to a fabulous start.
