3M (aka MarkyMarkMark)
I've never been able to run as slowly on purpose as Garmin suggests I should, for a long run.

Equally, I've never been able to go as fast as it suggest I should for intervals!

Basically, I run at just one speed.... mostly.

I’m very ,icy one speed which is why I thought it would be a good thing to have a go at PJ
I always surprise myself when I run faster in races without making any conscious effort to

I think the aim for long runs should always be to make them comfortable rather than worry about a specific pace. You’re aiming for distance or time on feet. I’d only worry about pace in sessions where you are specifically aiming for it and even then worrying too much about the numbers at first can be daunting. If you start making one session a week include some short quick bursts and one session have a more sustained higher tempo chunk, that’s ok to start and can feel more like fun than a chore ruled by the Garmin. I’d get used to running different paces first and how that makes you feel (at the time and afterwards) and then move on to something more structured.

good thought
won't do much this week to hopefully shave a few seconds off my 5m time sunday (monthly race)

Got something to say?
