My previous 2-mile best time for 2012 was 21 minutes and 44 seconds on May 23rd. Fast forward 3 weeks and I beat that time by quite a bit this morning.
Today’s performance was 20 minutes and 43 seconds. Didn’t even wear my racing shoes. Nose-breathed the first mile and then gulped air the last mile. I was getting chills around the 1.5-mile mark. Not sure why that happens when I’m running very close to my limit. My left leg also went slightly numb for the last 1/2 mile. That was pleasant.
Temperature was 73 degrees when I started. Bodyweight was 216.0lbs on the dot.
1st mile was 10 minutes and 37 seconds. 2nd mile was 10 minutes and 6 seconds. Average mile time was about 10 minutes and 22 seconds. Getting better. Slowly but surely.
