Ten Minute Mile?

Following a short illness, I’ve gotten back into my stride and have completed two early morning runs.

Yesterday was difficult, but today felt so much easier. This morning, I was quicker than my previous attempts over a mile, so I’m very pleased.

My very first attempt at running, saw me achieve a couple hundred yards, at a pace of 13.13 min/mile. Now, I’m a lot better with a pace of 11.50 min/mile.

I’ve been contemplating for a few weeks now about sticking to the mile (instead of adding distance), while trying to bring my average pace down (to run faster).

This mornings run might be the spur to do that. I’d be ecstatic if I could run the mile in ten minutes. After I’ve achieved that goal, and was comfortable with it, then it would be time to add extra distance.

My latest observation:

  • Distance: 1.099 mile
  • Average Speed: 5.07 mph
  • Max Speed: 5.94 mph
  • Heart Rate: 153 bpm
  • Pace: 11.50 min/mile



    1. I haven’t run for over 35 years, so the past few weeks have been a massive achievement for me. If I can do it, I’m sure you can John 🏃
