I am absolutely terrible at maintaining pace, but on a treadmill it kinda forces you to stay on pace - no accidental speeding up or slowing down. So, let me rephrase that - I love/hate the treadmill!
2) Wild Hair: And really, this is just an extension of #1. While at the Y, I thought, 'Oh, I'll be running inside, in the a/c, so I won't sweat so bad!' So, I didn't braid my hair or wear a headband - I just pulled my hair up in a default pony tail and went at it... and ended up with a tangled mess of super-sweaty (ew! gross, I know) hair. :( Lesson learned - you still sweat when you work out in the a/c! ((Told ya' I'm new to this!))
3) Speed Work
As a newbie, I research EVERYTHING as it happens to me and this is what I found:
Have you every hit a training rut? How did you deal?
Do you love or hate the treadmill? (Or both like me?!)
Train by effort or by pace?
