First crack at the mile…

I gave the mile a go tonight. I had predicted that I could do 5:20 on current fitness, unfortunately for me that was not the case: I crossed the line in 5:27. I had a little pick-up in me on the last lap and based on the experience alone I could probably run 3-10 seconds quicker… only trouble is that I don’t particularly want to try it again any time soon.
I’ll try to squeeze in a long run tomorrow and maybe tackle the mile (or some other distance from Don’s league table) over the weekend.
