I'm sure you've seen the Staples red buttons that say "That Was Easy" when you press them.
I think I need one that asks the question "Was That Easy?"
I started a half marathon training plan, about a week ago, even though I am not sure what half I am going to do this spring, I'm just pretty sure I'm going to do one, so I wanted to get to training.
I printed off a training plan from the Runner's World web site, and today called for a 2 mile "easy run." I actually went 3 miles, andto go at an easy pace (according to the plan, 11 min miles), but I ended up hitting like 8:45-9 min miles, but there were parts of it that felt easy. I am no good at pacing. I can never tell what pace I am running at. And I think there is very little difference in what I "feel" from a 8:30 min pace to a 10 min pace. So, that will make it tough to keep my runs on track with the "prescribed pacing" during my training. Right now I am more concerned with getting the miles in than the pacing, but with the longer runs I know that pacing will be imporant.
