A Good Laugh…

Recently at the gym I’ve been trying to get my running times to be faster. My goal is to run a mile in under 10 minutes to show up my lazy high school self who could only run/walk it in 13 minutes. 

My first few tries were a little disheartening -18 minutes the first time, 17:30 minutes the second time…

I felt like I was running my ass off. I mean, I had the treadmill set to 9.0 km/hr and was really working up a sweat but I couldn’t seem to get that 2.2 kilometers I needed for a “mile” anywhere close to my goal.

…then I realized that a mile is not 2.2 kms. It’s only 1.6 kms…


According to the Training Calculator @ Runner’s World, I’m actually at a 13 minute mile. Take that high school self!
