Don Hosek - Marathon - 25 February 1998

Now that a mile is no longer a long run for me (although just barely), I've decided to include in my regular walk and run schedule a fast mile where I run the mile as fast as I can. I doubt that it has any real value in the marathon training regimen but I'm curious to see how much I can increase my speed on this relatively short distance over the course of my training. Plus it gives me another column for the table.
