So that means you are doing a mile in 5 minutes? Thats pretty fast :shock:


To be considered competetive in elite Men's Mid-Distance events competitors are required to run a sub 4 minute mile.

Anyone running with a min/mile pace like that is probably doing it for a living.....

I, on the other hand wouldn't get hired with the 9:55 1.5 mile resume I submitted the other day.

Thats a great time Millsy! More in line with what I may be able to do with more training.

I'm thinking 10:15-10:30 may be my comfortable limit though. My gains are in distance, and I actually enjoy that more. For me to get to 10:30 ( My best is around 10:45 or so) I am REALLY pushing it. Mind you...I may be a bit older than the average runner here as well.

I had better times when I was in my 20's.... :|

I would have to say I am fitter now than in my 20's. I am pretty sure if I could go back in time I would easily kick my 20 something's ass. I would also tell me after I kicked my own ass to stay single. I run the mile and a half in 10:30, but I am sure I can do better. Actually I am running my first road race on saturday - a five miler. My long training runs are 6.5 mile so I am hoping being used to a longer distance will help. I think there may be an advantage when training for a 1.5 mile run to run 1.75 or 2 miles as the shorter distance will feel easier.

I don't mean to step off topic here, but...does anyone know where I can find a t-shirt or long sleeved shirt with reflective stripes or patches on it for running in low light?

Do you have a running room in your area? They have all kinds of that stuff.

Actually, I'm probably more fitter now overall, because not only am I working out daily...my diet is really good. I was involved in a lot of sports in my teens and and 20's, but it didn't matter what my diet was. I could just do it because I had the energy and the youth. Age does um....age you lol

Also, I am dealing now with the aches of the silly things I did in my youth, when you never really thought about the future "health" of your body. I lived in the "here and now", just because I could, and healing was MUCH faster. To go back in time......lol

I look at my kids now and think.....I want some of that!! hahah

Now it seems the energy comes from....vitamins, supplements, hot packs, cold packs, and..........granny blankets (for recovery) :oops:


:dubious:

Oh...and I have decided to NOT buy that "how much body fat do you really have" gadget! I'm in a good place now :alright: Don't need anything to bring me down :mrgreen:

Apparently, you can use the frustration you feel after you think you bombed an interview.

New best time: 9:56

Plus, I feel better about this morning. Weird how that works.

Oh yes, the benefits from exercising. Endorphins are free!
