There was only one goal with this run. I have had my Garmin 220 for a year and a half, and love the records that it keeps. I have recently "turned on" the 1km best time since it's off by default. I had not had a decent time for 1km...the pace was actually slower than my 1 mile best. So I planned to start a 1km on level ground, and get a good time. I was pretty sure I'd beat the time that was in there previously, but for some reason, running the faster paces gets me anxious before the run, even though I'm by myself. 

So after a short warmup (2K) I ran the 1km in 4:14 which is 6:49 pace. Not too bad for me. For comparison, my 1 mile best is 7:06. There just aren't a lot of opportunities to break these shorter distance records for me, since I'm usually running longer distances, but since I'm not starting my training plan for NYC Marathon until July, I'm just having fun running, and trying to do break some previous bests at different things. Last week, it was most total miles for the week (60) and this week I decided to go after the 1km best, and will probably go for my best mile on Friday.

So this is my first entry here at I'm going to publish this, and take a look around.
