6 minute mile!

9 06 2010

The Tuesday training session at Withdean had a different format last night: 6x200m, 1x800m, 4x200m, 1x1200m, 2x200m, and then 1mile.

I finally managed to get under 6 minutes for the mile: 5.55 actually! I’ve been trying to do that for over a year now. With any luck, it will help my Parkrun time but I’m not sure how 6mins for 1 mile translates up to 5km. I certainly couldn’t keep that pace up but think I might be able to beat my PB of 19:50.


Come on England!

St. George

Six days to go before the World Cup and I’m starting to get organised.

After several frustrating attempts, I finally managed to import the BBC fixture list into my Outlook calendar and then sync it to my phone. Every fixture is now at my fingertips. An IT triumph!

A family ‘discussion’ about the quality of our TV, which I lost, means that a flat screen HD ready LCD is now imminent. Should it be 26 or 32 inch?

I’ve yet to find my 1970 England team poster that I collected as an 8 year old but when I do, it will be going on the front window.  It was a great talking point with the neighbours at the last World Cup.

A friend has designed some alternative England Tees – designed to let you show your support for England whilst challenging a few myths. Think I like St. George best.

Parkrun was more sweatrun this morning – the hottest Saturday morning this year. I was a bit slower than last week but I missed training on Tuesday so it’s not so bad. One lad, James Oliver, who has Asthma and runs for Brighton & Hove AC , was raising money for Asthma UK – quite a few donations went into his collection bucket – hope he did well.
