My pace was better today. Maybe a little too slow though.
I slowed down on the first half and reached my turn around point about 2 minutes slower then last time. This allowed me to finish my run without any pain whatsoever. When I finally hit the 30 minute mark I still had some gas left in the tank.
I need to find a middle ground where I push myself but don’t get so tired that I have to struggle to breathe.
