What happens when you start running too fast

Run Instagram Reels

The first marathon I finished feeling strong and fast happened because I saw a friend when I crossed the starting line.

He lives far away and we chatted quite a bit. He was a marathon player and had to run slowly to avoid injuries and be able to run a lot of races.

He was really disciplined about his pace and I fell back off the chat.

After a few miles I said goodbye to running my race. I picked up the pace and ended up feeling better than usual towards the end.

I was able to push myself in the last miles and hit negative splits (which has rarely happened before)!

I knew you should never have ‘bank time’ to go out so fast but I couldn’t help myself!

Accelerating myself slower than I would normally -> resulted in a faster sprint than my usual strategy.

If you are new to running or racing, start slower than you think you should.

Tips for getting over yourself:

  • If you’re satisfied at the midpoint -> Accelerate!
  • If you feel satisfied in the last third -> speed up more!
  • If you’re satisfied with a few miles to go -> go for it! See what I made!!
