Running Times

Published 6/15/2004 by createdbyx in News

I have decided to start posting my running times. I run a course over a dirt road for 2.4km. Here the data table of my running times thus far...

Date		Distance	Time	Average		Comments
May 30, 2004	788m		4m30s
May 31, 2004	776m		4m56s			With break mid way
June 1, 2004	800m		3m56s	12.4kh		With 32 sec break mid way
June 2, 2004	800m		3m59s	12.1kh		With 30 sec break mid way
June 3, 2004	1.4km		8m35s	8.8kh		With 1 minute break half way (longer run at less speed more preferable)
June 4, 2004	1.4km		8m51s	9.5kh		With no breaks
June 5, 2004	1.79km		11m32s	9.3kh		With no breaks

June 10, 2004	2.45km		16m31s	8.9kh		With no breaks
June 11, 2004	2.4km		17m09s	8.4kh		With no breaks
June 12, 2004			10m			Took cassie dog for a run 
June 13, 2004	2.4km		15m53s	9.0kh		With no breaks
June 14, 2004	2.41km		14m24s	10.0kh		With no breaks (also rode to town about 45min)
June 15, 2004						Did not run. Did yard work.
June 16, 2004	2.41m		13m16s	10.9kh		With no breaks

My goal is to run 2.4km in under 11m56s. That is the Canadian forces minimum standard for entry. I figure if I can start running 2.4km in under 11m56s consistently I'm doing good. From the data table you can see that when I started doing my run I was running 12.4kh for only 800m I stopped doing that because it was too difficult so I opted for a slower pace run at a longer distance. Which is much easier. Although I can't recall the reason for deciding to start doing a daily run... Just for the hell of it I guess. :p
