Five Seconds Closer
I've been practicing 3-mile, 2-mile, 1-mile and 0.5-mile intervals as part of working towards my Goal, the 7-minute mile. I realize the 7-minute mile is itself a very average goal -- being in good shape should mean running it in 6 minutes or under. But I gotta start somewhere, right? (Once I hit 7 I will set the next goal). I mean, I'd rather set myself goals that don't require a $700 billion bailout when I don't meet them. In any case, I had reached 7:30 and finally today showed a measure of progress, hitting 7:25. Five seconds closer, and now "only" 25 seconds away.
