pinched nerve was preventing me from going much faster). I got 6 minutes flat on the mile today. I was heated. Several months ago, during the XC season I had done it in 10 seconds less. My 1600m PR from last season is 5:30. I thought I'd be a lot more in shape than I really am right now.
But maybe I'm being too hard on myself. I had about 4 bowls of cereal this morning, and even though I've never blown chunks after a run, I seriously thought I was about to this morning. I also have been really inconsistent with running, getting out only once or twice a week. And I didn't run at all last week because of that nerve issue. I think I just need to really step it up with the pre-season running.
