Would be too fast in your mind, but it gets me a good score every time, so is it really too fast? When I slowed down to what most people would have called a good
pace" to put me right on the time I wanted, I did worse, and the change was only literally 35 seconds for that lap (from 55 to 90). I think the psychological aspect goes a long way.
