Don't look at your watch so much when you're running. Most of your runs should be 'easy' and you need to learn to do these by feel. Make sure you can hold a conversation (talking to yourself is highly recommend!!) And / or practice some nose breathing throughout the run, that will bring your pace to where it should be. Overreliance on a watch that may or may not be right is not helpful.
Are you a golfer? Why not join the Boards.ie Golf Society. We are a very welcoming bunch of golf nuts so if you have a passion for the game with some like minded folk, come and get involved and play courses all over Ireland (and even further afield) with us. Drop me a pm with the below info and download the teamer app and we will send you invites to our outings.

So do you breath through your nose when running? I would normally be breathing through mouth. Might be part of my problem

I’m probably going to sound like some sort of alien now having just landed on earth trying to figure out what is natural to humans!!!!
Been trying to breath through my nose over the last week and am finding it very hard. I seem to naturally breath through my mouth. It’s taking a lot of concentration to inhale through my nose instead. I’m then breathing out through my mouth because it’s easier. Is that good or bad?
Invariably I’ve drifted back to mouth breathing though as the run goes on and I stop thinking about it
I’ll keep trying, but any tips greatly appreciated please.
In other news I was out the other night, got really pissed off when I knew I should be finished but had to continue for a while. Mapped it after. Watch had me do about 250m more than I actually should have to complete a 3.22 km session. If I’m doing an odd run here and there, so what, it’s no big deal. But I’m getting into in now haha and it’s frustrating.
So I bought a Fenix 6s Pro

I started running, realised how horrible it is and switched to trampolining (not rebounding) instead. Much easier on every bit of me.
Each to their own though.
