Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
So here is what happened: I run this 8 miler that consists of four 2-mile loops, pretty much flat. Thursday ran it easy in 63ish. Following day went back, just happened to feel good after loop 1 and went with it. Here's the splits: 15:38, 14:24, 13:33, 12:33. Went after it the last mile a little bit. So I got a huge confidence boost from it and signed up for a 5K scheduled for today:
Gorgeous weather, couldn't ask for better. 19:31 unofficially. 5:53 first mile, trying to be conservative. 1.5 mark had a long (not stride changing steepness) hill that I didn't know about. 6:56 for the 2nd mile (12:49 at this point). Last 1.1 was 6:46, so maybe 6:06 last mile. Just nice to get it out of the way. Not smartest run in the world but I really just let it hurt.
Funny side: High school kid won it last year so I assumed when this kid went off at the start really fast, it was him. I see him afterward, say good job, how'd it go. Proceeds to tell me he ran a 5 flat first mile, his PR in the mile is 4:56, so he finished 7th. And I thought I was surprised at my split.
Good to read about everyone else doing well. Thanks for the pick-me-ups jonesy.
