According to Jeff Galloway's miracle mile formula, my recent mile run time of 9:25 predicts I should run a 5K in 30:54. If I use my best ever mile time of 8:47 that predicts a 5K time of 28:56. But in mid-April I ran a 5K in 27:33, considerably faster than predicted.
My recent time predicts a 10K time of 1:07, but my April time was 1:01, decidedly faster than predicted.
My recent time predicts a half marathon time of 2:28. My one and only half marathon I ran in 2:37, slower than predicted.
What does this mean? I should be able to run a faster mile. I'll try. And I have a real shot at a personal record in my half marathons coming up in November and
