    That is awesome. Keep up the hard work and you will have it drop again in no time. I am working on my mile and 5 K times too. My mile is at like 11 and my 5 K is down to 34:40.

    Way to go, that is huge!! I too am working on speed and on the treadmill I am able to make myself happy, lets just hope it transfers outdoors, can't wait for running weather in the mornings. :)

    Just don't push it every run. And risk injury. Slow and steady miles will also help!!

    Great job!!!!

    that's great!! I haven't be able to run because I had a very bad sprain (left ankle) back in late Sept. After months of PT, today was the first day I ran without stopping!! I did 3.33 miles in 32:33! WOO HOO!!

    yay for us!!! hehe!! :smile:

    Awesome, congratulations!

    I suck big time at running, I've been trying to reduce my mile time for over a year, and it's just pathetic. :ohwell:

    freaking huge, awesome effort. Like Handyrunner pointed out though, don't sacrifice form or health for speed. Try to ease your way into it and make sure you give yourself some rest days. Strong work.

    NICE JOB! I just got mine to 11ish! cutting out about 60seconds or so. (i mistakenly hit stop and had to start it back up on treadmill) It's such a good feeling to shave off those seconds and run continuously!
