Reid over at Life Strides is on a mission to crack the 5-minute-mile barrier and he’s looking for some support.
Anyone and everyone is invited to participate in his Virtual 1-Miler on September 6th.
(Obviously, we are not expected to run anywhere close to a 5-minute-mile. Just go out and run a mile and send Reid some good vibes to reach his goal.)
I’ve never done a short distance time trial (nor have I ever done speed work) so I don’t really know what to expect. All I have to go on is my best 5K, which was a 4:43/KM pace or 7:35/mile. I’ll aim for around 7:00 and see what happens.
