TIP FOR THIS WEEK:  Pace Yourself!

this should help you finish the Timed Run in great spirit - Balanced run for great achievement!

  • First mile and Half : Control your pace!  you should feel comfortable and relaxed—like you can finish a sentence without having to catch your breath. If you're huffing and puffing, ease off...
  • After the turn-around:  you can pick up the pace now - just push a little faster than you usually do. 
  • Last Half Mile: Keep running, push as hard as you can.
  • Going out too fast? reset!  walk a few steps - breathe.
  • if you can’t run anymore: try to alternate walking a few steps and running again and try to speed up the pace on the last half mile.
  • "Slow and Steady wins the race!" ever heard of the Aesop's Fable: the tortoise and the hare?
