Mile Results

Four intrepid souls took on the challenge of the Mile time trial at least 2 of whom had never before raced a mile.  Here are the results.

Ed the most experienced of the group, ran relatively even splits and finished 6 seconds ahead of his intended pace.

Dorota reacted with surprise at the pace I’d assigned her, and proceeded to obliterate it by 9 seconds.  A competitive race and a little more experience and a 6:30 mile is within her sights.

Carleen was clearly concerned about my ambitious plan for her to stick with Dorota, but was clearly faster than she believed finishing only 3 second off the pace I’d given Dorota.

Larry made the all too common mistake of mile racers everywhere and went out too fast, but hung tough, and fought till the line.

Below each result is the splits for each of the 4 laps.  Ideally these should be the same.

Ed 5:34

(82, 83, 85, 84)

These splits tell me Ed is very close to even splits, but probably needs to focus a little more during lap 3.

Dorota 6:51

(1:41, 1:45, 1:44, 1:41)

Dorota didn’t go out too fast evidenced by the fact she was able to come back in lap 4 at the same as lap 1.  She just needs a little extra effort/focus during laps 2 and 3.

Carleen 7:03

(1:42, 1:47, 1:46, 148)

Carleen went out a little too fast, but was then very consistent.

Larry 7:25

(1:44, 1:51, 1:55, 1:54)

Larry similar to Carleen, was out too fast.

    This was harder than unmedicated chidlbirth. Not kidding. I’m glad I did it for a benchmark.
