I jog a lot but my kid and I made a bet so I need help winning. She bet me I couldn't run a sub 6:30 mile before she graduated HS. If I do then she's going to run her 1st year of college for me. If I lose I have to pay her car payments her first year. Fair warning, I'm old, overweight, and slow. I have 1 year 9 months to win.
I started a new diet 2 weeks ago and have lost 12 lbs. Current weight is 159.
I do about 20 miles a week at 9:30 to 10 min/mile pace. Is this doable? I don't mind paying her car payments but I don't really want to lose anyway.
Fastest mile this year was 8:25.
Need any other info?
