Since my last workout was endurance (60 minutes non-stop) today's goal was speed. Could I beat my mile time?
Yup!!! Mind you, my treadmill time shows much slower than my actual track time. Here are some gains I have made on the treadmill in six weeks:
Aug 25th: 1 mile = 15 minutes "hard"
Sep 11th: 1 mile = 12 minutes 34 seconds
Oct 6th: 1 mile = 11 minutes 32 seconds
Goal: 9 minute miles
Total workouts today:
- 2 miles during breaks at work
- 1.46 miles (up hill/down hill) walking home from the auto shop
- 1 mile speed test
- 1/3rd of a mile cool down
