10K Record!!

That's a new PR by 2:30 minutes! I was doing pretty good with the negative splits until mile 5; I don't know what happened there. Well, I do know what happened: I slowed down. The "why" part is what I don't know about.

I set the 305's alarm limits to keep me between an 11 and 10 min/mile pace; I might keep this pace as my default long run pace instead of the 11:30-10:30 pace. As I mentioned earlier, I'm starting to feel a little pressure to get my pacing moving toward the goal of 9 min/mile for 13.1 miles.

I ended January with 53.57 miles and 9.48 hours of running. This is my most productive running month to date, and I feel like I'm finally back to being in the shape that I was before taking two weeks off at the end of Dec. Yay me!
