Here are the results of my test:
- Mile One- 7:50
- Mile Two- 7:54
- Mile Three- 8:03
This is a great way to keep tabs on the progress you are making, whether you are training for a marathon or not. You can easily adjust the distance (run three 1/2 miles, for instance) to suit your own goals. I would really encourage everyone who is trying to work toward a goal, or maybe feeling like they aren't seeing concrete improvement in their performance to try this for themselves. The results and benefits of comparing your performance on the first test to your performance on the second test can be really revealing and extremely helpful when it comes to tweaking what you're doing when you are working out!
