So, I did it again. Another 13 minutes. Even though I slowed down a little to answer some passer bys some questions, I still made the best pace so far. I ran almost a mile and a half, and ran a good 8 minute and 43 seconds mile. This is by far the best run so far. I guess two days in a row at 13 minutes is official. I did push myself a little at the end, but it was slightly downhill.
Best day yet!
I reached 13 minutes. I don’t know how, but I did it. I just kept running and running… Must have been that I slept in until 11, and I drank a lot of water today. It felt strange. I just kept telling myself that I’m not as tired as I used to be during any of my other runs. Maybe it was a combination of things, but I’m hoping that I can keep it up.
Well, after a 4 day break, longest ever break, I still managed to impress myself. 11 minutes with an average speed of 5.9 mph. Max speed was 8 mph. I did have a running partner for 1/2 lap. My son, Ethan, decided to run with me for a little bit. I had to ask him to pace himself. It wasn’t a race and he didn’t need to sprint. We’re just running for health. It was nice to have a partner.
Late night run. I almost did 11:30 tonight. I felt good. I kept an average pace, and speed. Not bad at all.
I ran fast today, but somehow, I missed the 11 minute mark. I think I need to turn off the audio warnings when I reach a mile. I thought I was done when the voice kicked in for one mile marker. “Smart” technology, my a**.
I took it a bit easier today. Man, I have to stop drinking. I wonder what would happen if I fully optimize myself. No junk food, no alcohol, good rest, and tons of water. I want to eventually test that theory.
Well, two running days in a row. It went well. It’s official. My running time is 11 minutes. Considering a good pace of 5.6 mph and 10:30 minute mile, I’m doing rather well only 11 weeks in.
Well, this was a milestone. I guess, I’ve reached 11 minutes today. Not too bad. It didn’t feel like I had to do much extra work. It was just a regular run.
I think running 10 minutes a day for 3 times a week average is not too bad. Running every day does take its toll on me, though.
Good run tonight. Keeping up the pace. A bit slower. I think the whiskey last night didn’t help. But, I’m keeping up, so that’s good.
