Progress!

Here are some numbers:

9:04

8:48

8:42

8:24

What do the numbers mean?

The numbers are my average pace per mile (in minutes/mile) for the four speedwork sessions I've done since starting the training program for the Brooklyn half-marathon. Most of the runs involve a slow warmup and a slow cooldown sandwiched around faster paced running. Today's speedwork session was a total of 6 miles, with 4 fast miles at a pace of under 7.7 minutes per mile - the longest distance and fastest pace yet.

I'd say that's progress.
