Upping my speed

I’ve long had a goal of running 3 miles in 21 minutes (7 minute miles). I feel like this is a reasonable goal for someone who is fit.

Maddeningly, there are very few details on how long it would take to get to this level, so it’s hard to set deadlines/goals, which I think are really important for progress.

So I’ve decided to set myself the deadline of doing it by the end of next month (April 30). This seems fairly impossible — I can only run one mile at 7:20 now. However I feel like I need some serious urgency to get my crap together and just do it.

Annoyingly this is going to conflict a lot with work. Clearly work is a priority here. Just gotta try to get up earlier in the morning, and focus more.
