I’m pretty blown away that even after a year and a half I can still make progress and get better/faster/stronger. The 6 minute mile got started with the old assessment of push-ups for a minute, sit-ups for a minute and a mile run. I was pushing for 60 push-ups, 60 sit-ups and a 6 minute mile so I could have “the assessment of the beast!” I think I’d really need to eat some Wheaties to hit 60 push-ups in a minute. Maybe that will be my next goal.
I think a lot of newcomers look at veterans like myself and say “I’ll never be that fast or strong” but they don’t realize that I use to be worse than them! We’re all getting old. Progress isn’t impossible any more it just takes more time than when you were a kid. I think in another 5 or 6 years I can catch Usain Bolt 🙂
