I am extremely grateful for CJ from my running group who stuck with me for 7.5 miles this morning. He definately pulled me along at a faster pace than I would have done on my own.
With it graphed it by half mile increments you can see how much I slowed down for the final 1.5 miles that I ran solo. Yes, I'm blaming part of this on gravity, but without a doubt having someone to run with is a big help.
Despite my very slow finish, I'm pleased as punch for pushing through to the end.
- Overall average pace for the entire 9 miles was 11:13.
- Average pace for the 7.5 miles that I ran with a partner was 10:55. Woot!
Have a great weekend everyone!
