Remember him? El Caballo (the horse)! Motherfucker was tall, and ran w/ that long stride of his. Ran fast too. Did double damage in Montreal in ’76 winning gold in both the 400m and 800m. Only man ever to do so too! Anyways, I regress. Made me reflect on my runs, and realized, I never attempted 800m … not once. I knew I wanted to, but focused late last year primarily on my 1 mile runs for shorter distances. AND, after today’s blistering (LOL) time … figure if I stay focused, and w/ a better plan, should be able to PR it; bring my time closer to the six minute mile mark. Hope so! Oh, and once again, lack of tracking is my enemy. I lace up my Sauconys and hit the road running without any plan. I just go running … seeing where it takes me. Seems like not too far these days. That’s ok, doing what I can … and am pleased w/ the results considering it all!
sub 3 minutes, 3:37 minute/k pace … I’ll take it!
