Park Loop PR

I rarely run under 41 minutes for my six miles at lunch (heck, I rarely run under 42!) but this week I decided I'd try to run a bit faster each day.  I ran just over 42 on Monday, then a minute faster on Tuesday, and 30 seconds faster on Wednesday.  Thursday and Friday had me fast approaching "tempo run" pace, but I felt pretty good.  I closed out the week with my fastest time ever for the multi-loop 6 mile and had three of the top five times during this week.  Next week I might hit the track...

Here are the fastest Lunch Run 6, that I’ve done:
12/14/12 37:18 6:13
11/07/12 37:40 6:16
11/02/12 39:13 6:32
12/13/12 39:13 6:32
12/12/12 39:56 6:39
11/06/12 40:24 6:44
09/27/12 40:27 6:44
11/01/12 40:37 6:46
12/06/12 40:49 6:48

Here are the splits from today.  Can you tell I enjoy stats?  Yes, I do run 10 laps in this little park and no it doesn't get boring (I turn after 5 laps).

I take it you have a 1 hour lunch - right?

If so, I am wondering about setting myself up for a challenge of the 1 hour lunch ... change from the corporate job, bang out seven, get back to the corporate job showered and without sweat pouring down my face.

Six I think I can swing. Seven could be tough.

Yeah, 1 hour for lunch. 7 is do-able if you skip the shower :-0
