I think I found my niche.
Coach Sarah had me do a 1-mile time trial last week. Why? Um....good question. I don't rightly know the answer to that. She said "we" are doing one and I said okay because I basically do everything Coach Sarah tells me to do :) (you would too. have you seen her arms?? #gunshow)
I have not actually done one of these before. I think they are used to base pacing estimates to determine/reach time goals for each race distance. Anyway. I 'm not writing a blog post on the ins and outs of mile time trials. I'm writing to tell you that I think I found my next challenge.
After my time trial, I think I have shown some promise in the distance. Now, I wouldn't be breaking any records like the elites did at the world championships last week, but I think that if there were age groups, I might could be a Beer Mile contender!
Now I just need to learn how to chug a beer.
The training cycle will begin soon, but I gotta build up my "base" first....
Or should we dare to be different and start something completely new.
Like the Mezcal Mile...
(better have a pull up bar at the finish line...)
