5 minutes and 44 seconds

So we had our last track practice of lavaman training last night, and it was 4 x 4o0m @ 10k pace, 2 minute rest, 200 yards of stride outs, and then a 1 mile time trial. The 1 mile TT was mainly done as a way to see progress over the last 4-5 months.

And for the first time in my life, I ran a sub 6:00 minute mile!!!! My final time was 5:44!! This was 27 seconds faster than what I did in early december (6:11).

My splits were:

Lap 1: 1:23 (went out a little too fast)
Lap 2: 1:28 (yup, definitely too fast on the first lap)
Lap 3: 1:31 (oh man, this hurts)
Lap 4: 1:22 (suck it up and finish strong!)

Woohoo!!!!

Big thanks to captain Paul for logging the splits and Coach Dave for hooking up the new polar!

And Big props to Troy Gorostiza for taking over 30 seconds off his 1 mi TT time, and Brian Gunn and Greg Kurras for taking OVER a MINUTE off their 1 mile TT time!
