7 miles again today! I wanted to put a little pressure on my knee and see if it felt any different...it doesn't. It has the same sorness wether I run slow or fast it seems. I still think it's a bone spur as before...? One cool thing about my run today is that I ran my fastest 1 mile ever (5:34). My plan was to run 2 slow, 1 fast, 2 slow, 1 fast and 1 cool-down. I ran on the my loop where I have marked the road at every mile (with my car) and also varified it with my garmin (it seems to be right on with both the car and the garmin). The two miles I ran are the two flatter portions of my loop. On the first fast mile I felt pretty good through the half but started to get winded after that and had to slow down a little. On the second fast mile I got winded after the first quarter and had to slow down. I just need to figure out how to build up my cardio so I can run really fast really far :-)

22 Ahimaaz son of Zadok again said to Joab, “Come what may, please let me run behind the Cushite.” But Joab replied, “My son, why do you want to go? You don’t have any news that will bring you a reward.” 23 He said, “Come what may, I want to run.” So Joab said, “Run!” Then Ahimaaz ran by way of the plain[a] and outran the Cushite.

That is a smokin' fast mile! When you figure out how to run really fast really far, let me know! Sounds like a cool trick.

That's dang fast. When I read the part about figuring out how to run really fast really far my first thought was to make sure and let me know if you figure that one out. Then I read Joe's comment and saw he had taken the words right out of my mouth. Seriously though if you can run 1 mile that fast without really training specifically for it, you've got to have some good natural speed. It shows you've got great potential to get a lot faster at longer distances too.

Hey Joe and Dave,

I've been working on this idea about strapping a small oxygen tank to my back with a despensing system that allows more oxygen to be released the faster I run. I'm thinking this might do the trick but I've got to figure out how to keep from burning the engine up if I run it too lean...! Are either of you guys interested in trying the contraption when I get it finished? I'm figuring it can cut another 30-45 seconds off my mile time! :-)

Test it on yourself first, then ship it up here.
