Coach tells me to run 9 minutes, becuase that’s how lomg a 15-touch elimination bout runs (five-touch preliminaries are three minutes). You could argue with that reasoning, as there are breaks at the three minute marks and there’s all kinds of stops during any bout, but it’s good,conditioning advice nonetheless.

The track at my local comminity gym is 13.5 laps to the mile, on the moddle of three lanes. Used to do nine minute miles there when I was running 5Ks (bad knees put an end to that), so I’m making that my goal. Did a little more than 12 laps today, and wasn’t weezing at the end. Another couple weeks at that pace, then I can push for the 9 minute mile.
