The customer service gurus unintentionally lied to us

March 31, in the pool three days ago, recording a couple short “business” videos.

The customer service gurus unintentionally lied to us. They didn’t know any better. And this “lie” has been perpetuated since the invention of the “service economy”.

Preparing a TEDx Talk that covers this and solves it too – essentially celebrating a new customer service mantra.

You are poised for sub-seven

Running pace for one mile
The 1600 meter time was 7:20. The 6:36 was for 1200 meters. Notice the 3 consecutive laps with negative splits.

 

Heads up, this will likely be confusing to non-runners. Sorry.

Here’s the breakdown of your 7:20 mile yesterday…

  • 0:56    0-200 meters
  • 1:56    200-600 meters
  • 1:55    600-1000 meters
  • 1:49    1000-1400 meters
  • 0:44   1400-1600 meters
  • 7:20  final

Important to note: your combined 400 time for your first and last 200 meters was 1:40.

Also note your final 200 was by far your fastest at :44 seconds.

One text is worth a 1,000 words

running accomplishment
Yesterday.

 

One text is worth a 1,000 words.

Previous best was 8:35.

Huge improvement.

By the way, as a Baby Boomer, the main theme for our improvement, is maintaining our health after we reach an elevated state (compared to our “previous health before our lifetime commitment began”).

He ran an 8:45 mile in personal fitness

He ran an 8:45 mile in personal fitness.

This is a big deal.

Tomorrow morning, what could you run a mile in?

And he’s only just begun.

He’s making steady progress, without working too hard.

You can make a lot of progress if you do this one thing

Map My Run mile splits screen shot jeff noel
Mile five was a big surprise yesterday.

 

You can make a lot of progress if you do this one thing:

Keep making slow and steady progress.

In yesterday’s 7-mile run, edit out the first slow warmup mile, and the last two slower cool down miles.

What’s in the middle is the real story. Four progressively faster miles.

And it is the last mile in the official workout (excluding warmup/cool down) that the real story comes alive.

Dropping a 6:23 on the final mile.

Wow.

A seriously delightful surprise.

Quite motivating.
