Uh Oh

Distance                 5k             10k             Half Marathon              Marathon
Time                      22:44        47:13             1:45:16                           3:41:32
Pace                         7:19          7:36                 8:02                                8:27

According to McMillan's Running Calculator, my shorter race distance times should reflect what is shown in the chart above to sync with my current marathon time.  I need to be one minute faster in my 5k, two minutes faster in my 10k, and four minutes in my half.  I guess this proves my endurance versus speed theory (My theory:  I am slow).   To qualify for New York City with a 3:25 marathon, my shorter distance times need to be lightning speed, apparently.  I have my work cut out for me in the next year.    Good thing I took the day off today to think about all the training that I could be doing instead of typing and eating chocolate chip cookies.  In my defense, I didn't really enjoy the cookies.  I had to buy the Pepperidge Farm Soft Baked Montauks because the local commissary doesn't sell my usual yummy Nature's Promise cookies.  I will accept your pity if it's genuine.
