|Subject: ||RE: Have You Ever Decided You Were Going To Break 4:00 For The Mile?|
I remember in 7th grade running like a 63 or something like that for my fastest 400. I only ran half a track season my senior year because I played baseball all 4 years, but off less than 20 miles a week I ran 1:59.
I'm not boasting, but to decide in middle school that you can't break 4 in the mile is a bit early.
As a college runner, I don't know if I'll be able to break 4 or not, but I'm going to give it a shot. I have never ran all year round before (due to other sports or in the past couple years, injuries) and have only ran 50 miles/week consistently for about 2 months. Maybe I don't have enough ability to do it, but if I can get 2 years of consistent training and get my mileage up near 70 for a long while, then who knows, maybe I have a shot.
Obviously its a fictional work, but I remember in Once a Runner Quenton Cassidy, on his way to breaking 4 minutes in the mile, at the half mile split, remembered in high school that going sub-2:00 for the half would have taken all he had.
So maybe I can be like Quenton.
