It's weird because the last 2 times I went out to try just 15 minutes at a very easy pace. I always think I going pretty slowly in my mind but then my body tells me you better stop...or else.

Today at the track I realized what felt like slow the previous run attempts was really more like my 400m pace and I really really need to make myself slow down.
