Getting faster!

Sunday highlight - another running PR - a big one :-)

I ran my fastest 800m ever yesterday. By 27 seconds.

My previous 'urban' PR was here: 4:42.

Fastest time on a track: 4:40.

Yesterday's time: 4:13 !!!

Today was another 'relay' day - so something about being in an actual competition - against more than just myself and where my team is affected by my performance really pushes me to push myself. Most of my 800m runs, even recently, have been 5+ minutes.

Given all the running we've been doing I'd almost be more surprised if my running wasn't improving, but a 27 second jump is pretty exciting.
