2018 Summer Training
June 7th–September 9th

From June 7th through September 9th I trained for the mile. Previously I had run 4:23.19 for one mile and 1:54.01 for 800m. Below I break down my summer of running. A conventional training log typically examines a block of training one day at a time, explaining each day’s run and repetitions. This log aims to take a step back from the traditional day-to-day training and instead takes a look at my running by the numbers. At no point will I explain any specific session.

While this may be considered unethical by some, I counted strides and races as intervals.
