6 Minute Mile?

Sunbathing After The Pool Time

Before you go to bed each night, do you think about when you’re going to exercise the next day?┬áMaybe you should. What would happen if you did?

So last night I asked cousin Mike, “Can you run a 6-minute mile as a 51-year old?”

“No, I can run a 7-minute mile”, Mike said.

I continued, “We’ll go 5 miles. First mile a warm-up, and then mile two as a time-trial. I’ll slow up (a lot) after that and you can catch up and we’ll run the last three miles together.”

Last week’s time trial netted a 5:45 mile. With splits of 2:55 and 2:50.

Remember when I was only running one mailbox per day? Good thing it never felt like a Green Mile.
