You won’t believe how well I’ve learned running pace, but you should. Why? Because it may help you think of your own creative goal(s) to have fun and improve yourself. And things like this are what determine if you make exercise a lifetime habit.
So I set out to run a sub-six-minute mile a few days ago (remember I’d been traveling and sick). The first 800 meters should be right around 3:00, the second 800, the same. Actual: 2:58 and 2:57 = 5:55!
