3 months ago my average mile time was in the high 14 minute range. Yesterday I completed a mile in 10:18. Much of an improvement, if you ask me! Super proud of myself and can’t wait to keep training to reach my goal! 5 months ago

I’m slowly realizing that having just a bite of chocolate about an hour before the run really helps. 12 months ago
I just clocked-in at 8.50, completing my goal of running a 9 minute mile. Now, it’s time for 8… 12 months ago
About a year ago, after an insane amount of work, I was able to run a 6 minute mile. I should know better than to slack off.
Here we go again.
Goal: 8 minute mile by Dec 1. 12 months ago
Slowly inching my way closer. Not sure if I’ll complete this goal by summers end. But I’ll definitely have it by new years. 16 months ago
And I’m slowly inching my way to a 9:30 minute mile. I’d like to have this goal completed before the summer is over. 17 months ago
I have a tentative date with a running buddy to work on miles outside. I usually run on the treadmill, but recently I’ve been finding it boring and even more difficult than it should be. (I rarely run better than a 10 minute mile on the treadmill, although I know I can easily do a 9 minute.) Besides, the weather’s so nice lately, the only thing keeping me back from going outside is feeling awkward about exercising in public. We plan to run mornings before our 8 AM class a few days a week, at our school’s track. One of the advantages to this is that I know a few good 3-mile routes from the high school, as compared to me running alone in my neighborhood which would involve running the same boring mile 3 times (I’m not really allowed to leave the neighborhood on foot, as my parents don’t want me running on a major road.) 18 months ago
Had to run a mile in gym today, I got a 9:08. Not bad, considering how lax I’ve been about running lately. I know I should be pushing for a better time, but I’m kinda stuck on being proud of how much I’ve improved over the past year, fitness-wise. (Completely inflexible to being able to touch my toes easily; not being able to run a half mile to, at one point, running 3 in like, 28.5 minutes; being embarrassingly stereotypical in that I could do about 10 pushups to being able to do 30 now.)
Surprisingly, I didn’t mind running outside that much. Usually I run on a treadmill, but maybe I should switch when the weather’s nice. 19 months ago
I set 10 as a goal, and shot through it. 8 will not be as easy. This will take actual working towards. I did an unimpressive 5K of mixed run/walk today, after not running since last July. I call that a good start and get going on this. 20 months ago
