As reported here last time I was thinking that maybe I could string together 3 miles in under 33 minutes. It seems I'm usually more comfortable at around 11:15 but keep running some sub 11's here and there.

Today my main goal was to run my 3 mile course without stopping. That should lead to my best time be it under 33 minutes or not. Here's the splits:

Mile 1 10:31 (yikes. . .too fast!)
Mile 2 11:36 (too slow! or is that middle mile a little long?)
Mile 3 10:26 !!!!! (I also passed the two fat girls that passed me with a quarter mile to go)

Total 32:35 YES! I killed it!

Now I need a new goal or a 5k race or both. Now with proper rest and diet I should NEVER not be able to run 3 miles. EVER!

Two miles out. Rest and stretch and 2 miles back. Here are the splits

Mile 1 10:57
Mile 2 10:56 (points for consistancy?)
7:32 (rest/stretch)
Mile 3 11:14
Mile 4 Walked home

Not bad. Tomorrow I think I'll just run a flat 3 miles (avoiding the bridge over LSD makes it flat) and see how I do. No stopping. 33:45 would be a nice goal making 3 11:15 miles. 33 flat look doable in the near future. Just need to stick another 10:55 or so on the end of the first two!

Just another day. . .

Ran a mile. Stopped. Turned around. Walked/ran back. Getting just a little tiresome. . .

Although, that one mile was in 10:14 so as slow as I feel I am going that is way under my usual 11 minute pace. Back at it tomorrow AND Sunday.
