The need for speed.

For my entire running life, I've been slow. Like turtle slow. We're talking 11-13 minute miles. But lately I've noticed something over the past few months.....I'm getting faster (YAY). But with this new realization I'm finding that I really dont know how to pace myself for my long runs. Yesterday I did 8.5 miles at an average pace of 11 minutes per mile but when I plugged my Garmin in to look at the data, my last mile was run at an 8 minute pace!! Obviously I'm not running a consistent speed and I must find a way to work on this..........
