Sub 5 minute mile! (Read 1100 times)

    Awesome, Chris!!! Jeff's right about the 5k, but if you're tired of chasing the ghosts of your former self, then try a marathon. I ran my first marathon last year and really enjoyed the training--it was better suited to my 30 year-old temperament and opened up new vistas in running. Plus, you won't lose that speed too quickly. Marathon mileage + miler speed equals a kickin' 5k along the way. Just a thought. Congrats again.

    Run like a kid again!

      First off Congrats on the 1 mile PR. Very impressive. I have no idea how fast I could run 1 mile but I'm pretty sure I would die trying to do a 1 mile sprint. I noticed you joined the Columbus Marathon group so it looks like you have decided on the marathon instead of the 5K huh!

        Thanks, man! I still haven't completely made a decision but I think I'm going to focus on my 5k time but put the mileage and training in to be able to run my first marathon. Since I live in Columbus and was targeting this year's marathon at the beginning of the year (before fracturing my foot in February), I figured I might as well re-add that goal to my list. Between now and then, I'm hoping to run a few longer races just to test my progress along the way. Last time I ran a race over 5k was back in 1994!


        Idiot

          I knew I should have shown up to that race to get my butt kicked by a fellow RA'er. Nice job, Chris. Big grin

          I decided that if I'm going to call myself a runner, I should probably run.
