Currently at a 6:15/mile for one single all out mile, seeing as sub 20 is 6:25/mile for 3 whole miles I think I’m going to need to get a faster mile time in order to improve much more now.
I am 49 years old, male and usually run around 50 min per day. My favourite distances are 10k and half marathon and in fact, those two distances are the only distances I have ran in the last 3 years, I usually run around 44/1:40.
I’m going to focus solely on my 800/mile times for a few months. What times should I aim for before I start to think about sub 20?
I have never, ever been super fast. I am not talented and cannot rip off 5 min miles or 12 sec 100s like most people here.
