I just need to put it out here for everyone to see. I FINALLY had a 3+ mile run where I averaged under 8 minutes a mile! Today I did this run, and it was amazing. First mile and a half is downhill, but as you can see I ran the same route back up. The part I’m most happy about is the final mile (all uphill) I averaged an 8:08/mile. Anyway, this goes to show that if you keep at it you can achieve your goals. Now to run under 8’s consistently and add mileage. But at this moment I will celebrate finally breaking that barrier!
