Day 8 The 4 Minute Mile

09 May 2016 8:42am (3 years ago)

In your face Roger Bannister, in only 1 week of training I've broken the 1 minute mile.

Admittedly Roger Bannister was on foot and I was on a bike, but that's just a technicality. In between mile 5 and 6 I manage a 4 minute mile, which is an average speed of 15 miles/hour.

The other thing about today's ride was I can so close to a 40 minute commute, considering on day 2 it took me 1 hour 9mins I reckon that's pretty good.

Tomorrow, see if I can do it my goal is to get in under 39 mins which would mean that I'll have knocked off 30 minutes in 1 week.

This is totally doable:

Distance: 8.6 miles
Time: 00:40:46
Average Speed: 12.7 miles/hour
