Firecracker Mile

There was a race in Clawson today called the Firecracker Mile. I didn't run it mainly because I didn't sign up early enough to get the lower price and because I didn't really want to drive out there.

Anyhow, I decided to run a timed mile because I had never done so (as an adult). I picked a flat loop in my area to run, did a mile slow run warmup to get there and then went at it. Here it is:

My legs, particularly my quads, have not recovered from Saturday's outing and I didn't follow my usual running morning routine. I think that in a race setting with proper preparation, I would be in the 6:30 to 6:45 range. Still not blazing fast, but better than today.
