Starkey Park and Strider Orientation
This was my first run with the Strider Group from the YMCA. My ave. pace was 9.20 which was considerably slower then I hoped for. It was a good run and everyone was very friendly. I ran only two miles with David another runner and host. My plan for next week is to arrive early and keep with a group of runners. It was a real wake up call though because my times were really slow but I felt like I was working. I think it was the combination of heat, the somewhat unknown with the group and of course the fact that my training has been all inside with low mileage. I was glad to get the eight in but I wish the times were faster or at least less effort.
