Early this morning, I was updating my online running log and when I finished, I started browsing a few other runners to see how their races this past weekend went.
I pulled up John C. and he talks about going through the first mile in 4:47 and the second mile in 4:51. I just had to laugh to myself. If I went through the first mile in 4:47 , I would be in total oxygen debt. And if I somehow managed to hit the second mile in 4:51, the paramedics would need to break out the paddles because I am sure that I would be headed for full cardiac arrest.
But then, this is what I get for trying to compare myself to someone that is 20 years younger.
