What does an injured runner do to pass the time and keep his mind off of running? Why, yes, he goes through his running log books and Garmin 305 history to put together a list of fastest miles run within a workout or race for the last several months! Nothing like a little obsessive/compulsive behavior to alleviate some of the frustration!
I haven't run an all-out mile in many years, so these are just mile splits from either workouts (mostly tempo runs and intervals) and from races.
Here's what I came up with:
That's about all I got right now. If you haven't already, check out the latest Runner's Round Table episode 85, where I had the pleasure to co-host, along with Matt, Margaret, Toni and Dan. We talked about staying motivated as aging runners. It was a fun discussion.
[*I know, speed is totally relative. To some, I'm somewhat fast. To others, these are recovery mile times.]
