I almost didn't do the MAF Test today - for some reason, I haven't run much in the last month (6 times for a total of 26 miles), some laziness, some life getting in the way, some unknown. Then it dawned on me that this would be a great MAF Test, as it would show me if I had built any base endurance.
Again almost exactly a month later (September 3rd versus August 2nd versus July 3rd), I headed out on MAF Test 3: 55 degrees versus 63 and 61, 88% humidity versus 94 and 88, close enough in terms of apples to apples comparison. I again walked the 1st mile, then a slow jog for Mile 2.
Mile 1: 11:33 (September), 11:12 (August), 11:49 (July)Honestly a bit surprising. With such minimal training, I still improved my last mile. Imagine if I was more consistent and improved my nutrition!
Mile 2: 11:41 (September), 11:36 (August), 12:37 (July)
Mile 3: 11:22 (September), 11:48 (August), 12:24 (July)
