      Thanks! I’m happy with the improvements. Now it’s time to mix up the routine.

    Awesome job….I am still working on just running for a length of time, but my fastest is between 14 and 15 minutes.

      Small goals are good. Like run 5 minutes or for 1 mile, then walk, then run again, etc.

    I have gotten much faster since I started doing speedwork on the treadmill. I think on my 12miler I did a little over an 8min mile. It is all because of speedwork. Looks like you are going to have to start doing at 10k loop!

    great job on the increased speed!!! I can run a mile in about 6:45…back when I was young ( haha) I could run a sub 6 min mile…oh those were the days!!!

      WOW! You guys are all so fast!!

  5. Julie @ Pickley Pear

    Way to go on the mileage/pace! I’m still at about a 9 min/mile. To avoid injuries start out slow, speed will come with experience. Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend!

    Right now my fastest is 9:30 and I am SO happy with that! Some days are better than others but each day is a new day! Congrats on increasing your run, for not sleeping well last night that had to make you feel better!

      I think I’m about 9:30ish too. For me, my goal is to sustain a pace and continue to run without stopping more than being fast.

    My Monday actually turned out decent.

    My recap: Friday: Swam 1500meters.
    Sat: Rest day.
    Sun: Biked 30miles.
    Mon: 15 mile bike, 2.5 mile run, 550 meter swim.

    I felt pretty good for a Monday. Lets see how I swim today. :-/

      That sounds like a pretty great set of work outs! Good job!

    My mile time depends on the distance. But typically when racing I average 7:00/minute miles.

    I am sloooooooooow. I try to maintain a 10 minute mile on long runs and I can manage a 9:30 or so for very short runs (like 5k or less). I’ve never actually done speed work, and trail running/hill running didn’t change my pace in the least. I keep saying I’ll get around to working on speed some day…

    Kelly, 7 minute miles! Thats awesome. LOL! After I complete my first sprint Tri I am going to work on my speed a bit. I am barley hitting under 9 minute miles….. :-/
