Course: COD track
light wind on last stretch
My intention was four miles, 9:15 each. My time-sense is off. Instead of four miles, I was pretty tired at three miles and thought it better to finish strong rather than exhausted at this time of the game
Starting a little faster was no help, especially as my first 400 was at 2:05. I finished my last 400 in 2:05 too, hoping to finish under 27:00, just to say I did. There was more left in the tank, but I did not run today intending to sprint.
Today's victory was not that I ran four miles - that never happened, but that I ran two days in a row despite being tired. Tomorrow, I will shoot for four miles, and hope I start slower.
Looking at 20:00 for not just three miles, but three miles plus a smidgen more seems crazy. I can't see that far. I can, however, see 26:00 in the not too far future.
Tomorrow's goal is today's - four miles @ 9:15 each.
