Yes, I know. That is not very fast. However, we all have to start somewhere and that is where I am starting. My goal is to get my speed and stamina up over the next year so that I can do a 6 minute mile by the end of this year. In fact, my goal is to do five 6 minute miles back to back. In other words, 5 miles in 30 minutes. That would be 10 mile per hour!
Why do I want to run that much? Because I am a soccer player. I LOVE soccer and I want to improve my game. Soccer players require high levels of speed, stamina, and skill. I also have a long term goal of being a soccer player my whole life. I want to still be playing soccer and stomping on the competition when I am 100 years old. Hold me to it!
