Eileen's Lessons - March 2017

This past weekend, I completed my second half marathon. For those unfamiliar with running races, a half marathon requires you to run 13.1 miles. Running that many miles is a lot for anyone, especially for someone who, less than 4 years ago, couldn't even run a mile. Well I could run one mile; however, it just took me about 14 minutes - which is basically walking. Eventually, I found that I could run one mile and one mile only in 12 minutes, then 11, then 10 and then a little less than that. Awesome! I soon realized that I wanted to run longer distances, and to do so, I needed to slow my pace down to a 12-minute mile pace. After a few months, I was able run a continuous 2.5-mile loop around a local park. Once again, with practice, my multiple mile pace increased to a little faster than an 11-minute mile. What happened next?
