Adam Culp talked about his easy pace speed increase on his blog and it got me thinking. That's exactly what's happened to me recently. My 9:30 easy pace no longer feels easy, it feels lethargic. For the last 2 days my runs have been nearer to the 9mm range.
I talked a bit about this in ep05 of ydhtra. Is it the suppliment? Rest? Blizzards? Weight loss?
Does it matter?
And just like Adam postulated, do you embrace the change or call it a fluke. But for one, the amount of effort per Avg HR is much different now than it was even 2 months ago.
I don't have a race to plug into McMillan's calculator. It's been my bible for nearly 2 years now.
Thanks to the data of sport tracks I've noticed a significant difference in the last few months. So whatever it is, I've got to think that in order for me to challange my new self I will have to increase my pace accordingly.

Man what a journey this has been.
Run for fun!
