Aiming too low?


Today, I was supposed to have my monthly assessment with my trainer. Unfortunately, she never showed up, so I decided to do the run part by myself. For this part of the assessment, the goal is to run the farthest you can in 12 minutes. When I first did this in April, I think I ran about 3/4 of a mile, maybe a little more, and was gasping for air at the end. Six months later, I ran 1 1/4 mile, did the mile in 9:57, and easily could have gone longer. As one of my major goals was to run a 5K in 30 minutes, and I'm already at the 10 minute mile pace, I'll have to see if that is too easy of a goal - I might have to aim for the 9 minute mile instead.
