Today my plan simply told me to do a Time Trial for 1 mile, and that’s it. A Time Trial, also known as the Magic Mile, is a way to measure your progress as you train. You are supposed to go to a track and run the mile as fast as you feel like you can. So that’s whatI did. In the blazing mid-day sun.
Since running one mile on my long running day is just completely ridiculous I decided to add my usual 4 mile trail run. I ended up running a bit further than I probably should’ve. Oh well.
My time for the mile has improved though! This makes my competitive, track running 15 year old in me proud.
Today’s power song was “Higher Ground” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
