What the hell?! My running mojo has come back with a bang this week! For the third day in a row, I got a run in… well, three runs to be exact.
Ok, so they were only three one mile runs on the treadmill, but the breaks between them were short and each mile was run in full without walk breaks.
So what possessed me to run mile repeats on the treadmill this evening? Well, as part of the Virtual Running UK Race Series, we have been doing 1 mile races every month. Usually, I just take a mile from a longer run but, since I’m trying to improve my pace anyway, I thought it would be fun to do some miles on their own.
Mile 1 – 10:03
Mile 2 – 09:50
Mile 3 – 09:36
OK, so I know I wouldn’t be able to maintain that type of pace on a longer run, or even when running outside (not yet anyway), but it was fun anyway and hopefully it will help with my general pace in the weeks to come.
How’s your training going? Do you run repeats of shorter distances to help improve your speed? Please share your thought in the comments.
