Tomorrow evening my running club run it’s last mile race of 2016. It’s a fun event that we’ve been running monthly for most of the year and usually attracts a good number of runners looking for a short fun race.
After the first time i ran the mile in 5:12 early in the year I set myself the goal of going under 5 minutes for the mile. I haven’t been able to achieve that yet with my best time being 5:06. I don’t think i am in the shape I need to be currently to run a sub 5 minute tomorrow evening but I will certainly go there and have a crack. Normally I am more suited to endurance and have more success over the longer distances, running the mile hurts in a different way.
Looking forward to running this event. More for the camaraderie with my fellow runners but also to test myself against some good runners and try and run my best mile yet.
