June 28th, 2017 – Finished off my last road race for June. This race is called the Midsummer mile, a 1-mile road race hosted on the State Fairground.
I clocked in at 6 minutes, 58 seconds, which is about 1 minute, 15 seconds slower than my personal best last June. I feel like the strongest cause for this slowdown is because I went from running 5-6 days a week to about, maybe, 1-2 days a week. I am aiming to get to a sub-5 minute mile before the end of this year, so I’m going to start running a lot more for the rest of the year.
