NerdStrong Gym - Endurance Testing
We started with a 1 Mile Run, that's 8 laps around the parking lot (which they actually measured and found it that it's not 250 meters round it's 230 meters), but since we did 8 laps we actually did 1.14 miles. Coach Blair wanted us to try and keep our laps pretty steady with less then a 10 second difference. I did pretty good the first four times around but on my fifth I was about 20 seconds off my time and I fell even more behind on my seventh and eighth time. But I run this 1 Mile (actually 1.14 Miles) in 11 minutes 51 seconds. I'm hoping to get it under a 10 minute mile the next time we test in October.
Overall I'm happy with my numbers. I ran the entire 1.14 miles which was great and I'm happy with my pace for rowing.. of course next time we are going to be doing the entire 2000 meter at one time. As you can see from the picture we were all dead tired after this workout but it was good indicator at where we are physically. And we get to do this all over again in October.
