Sometimes I get down that I'm still slow and I get really discouraged. Today, I thought I'd figure out my previous race paces and compare them to where I am now. This is what I calculated.
Half Marathon #1: 16:10 pace (last year)
Half Marathon #2: 14:39 pace (this year)
15K #1: 16:07 pace (last year)
15K #2: 13:56 pace (this year)
Those are the only races I've done 2 of but it just showed me that I HAVE in fact grown in a year's time. I need to keep these numbers in mind when I get down about speed.
