I’ve reduced my mile time by over 2 minutes in 3 weeks. My major February goal was to get my mile time under 8 minutes. A lot of research shows that a man getting their mile run time under 8 minutes is a major health indicator to man’s chances of dying of heart disease.
I finally hit under 8 minutes. Not a big deal for a lot of people, but those people haven’t seen me run. I’m a gimp. A gorilla. Not meant to be in stride.
But. It is amazing how much improvement can be made in just 3 weeks of concentrated effort. I think that has been the major revelation in 2 months of challenges. A lot is achievable in short periods of time with concentrated effort.
10 more months of challenges to go. January down. February down. Let’s see what’s in store.
