A 5:50 mile is par for the course now. What does this mean, it means that 90 days ago, a 6:23 mile was the fastest in a year. Remember, 5:50 isn’t my fastest mile, it’s what’s currently possible, at will, without doubling over in exhaustion.
Without tracking the progress, the motivation (and results) would be waning. Know the feeling?
