Today was the first time I have done my speed intervals outside in a while. I always forget how bad I am at pacing! I have never been any good at running a specific pace. When I go out for a run I tend to just run how I feel. If I feel like going fast, I do, if I feel fatigued I go slow. My plan today was to run 3, 3 minute intervals at 5K pace (8:00 min miles). I was all over the place! Part of the problem was that I didn't realize that I don't have my watch set to display both pace and time at the same time, so I had to keep switching between screens, but my pace was around 7 min miles. I tried to slow down a "little" and end up around 8:30 min miles. I could definitely use some work on running a consistent pace!
