So the thing I find most interesting is that I somehow don’t seem to be lacking in basic speed. Speed stamina for sure. I gauge this from running a 1 mile event in 6.26 two weeks ago the day after a marathon [though I was taking it easy] and doing 6.20 for the first mile of the 10K sunday and feeling fairly comfortable.

On the books then with less weight and even before more specific training [both speedwork and core and leg strength work] I should be able to go at least 5.40 right now.

No time unfortunately now to do any training for this aim [nor lose the weight] before the mile race on Sunday, but it will be interesting to see what I can do? Not a main aim currently neither. Certainly looking forward to doing something a little different next year with regard to this aim however.

A fun 7 miles this evening.
