Woohoo, Mile PR!

The XC team was set to do time trial runs between 2-5 miles today, but I thought I'd join them for the first mile to see if could set a new PR for myself. I'd need to break 5:41 to do so, and thought I could. So after a two mile warm-up, I set off with those speedy little whipper-snappers and broke my old record by :10 seconds, finishing in 5:31. Hilly mile also. That time is of course nothing for many of the kids on our team though. It is humbling doing speed workouts with those guys, but I'll take that PR with no problem!

Ran a cool down a little less than two miles and called it a day. Good run.

Warmup - 2.1 miles @ 7:09/mile pace.
Mile - 1.0 mile in 5:31
Cooldown - 1.8 miles @ 7:51/mile pace.
AHR/MHR for the mile - 164/171
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Upper 50s, sunny.

"Hilly mile also."

Why does this not surprise me?

Anyway, congrats on the PR!

A 10 second PR in the mile?! Outstanding. Heck, it took Haile a full 26 miles to shave a measly 29 seconds off the WR.

I missed that 'hilly part' on my 1st read. Nice work Jamie! You're ready to go.
