Speed January 9, 2007Posted by RegiVizz in Running.
What would be the best time/way to work on speed?
Last night I ran the first mile a minute faster than my average pace, but then my next mile ended up a minute slower than my average. The third mile was average. Is this any way to build up speed? Mostly the first mile was to work off some hurt and frustration but hey, maybe it’ll help my speed in the long run? I was hoping to gauge my success by how I felt at the end (hoping to feel like I had worked harder) but due to circumstances (crying a bit) I couldn’t really tell.
What do you more experienced runners say? Do you speed up your short runs?
Asics: 10 miles this week, 82 total.
