Breaking into the 8 min/mile mark

without comments

Last night was my speed work night.  I set out for a little over a 5k (3.51 miles) and surprised myself with another personal best.  8:40 average mile.  I wasn’t even pushing it that hard.  While this isn’t anything crazy, I’ve been running for a bit over a month now and it was just last week that I was excited that I broke under the 10 minute mark for a sustained run.  I’m sure I could shave off time if I ran in the daylight (can’t see much at night so I’m always slowing down at intersections or tripping over things) and didn’t play car dodge.
