Do any of ya EVEN remember Sebastian Coe? Steve Ovett? Anyone? No? Ok, I digress. Looking at all my running accomplishments, all achieved in such a short period of time, I noticed I never attempted shorter distances. It got me thinking … I should try for a respectable 1500 meter/mile time. Today was officially my first full run ‘n gun at the mile distance. Funny, before I even challenged myself, I was envisioning a 6 minute mile. In retrospect … WHAT WAS I THINKING, lol?! I fool myself ’cause I feel like the proverbial invincible teenager, but I still have to keep reminding myself; not only am I a 50 year old dude, but I’m a 50 year old dude who just became a runner 3 1/2 months ago, lol!!
All things considered, 6:39 ain’t shabby … I’ll take it. AND, I know I’ll be able to whittle it down (realistically) to 6:25 … 6:20 on a good day, and hopefully soon. Stay tuned!
