5:46

My new fastest mile time. I have to admit this was achieved on a treadmill, so I don't know how accurate it is compared to running on a track. But I'm still happy about it.

This may sound like I'm bragging, and I guess I am in a way, but I'm really proud of myself for this.

Prior to this, my fastest mile time was 6:01 from my freshman year of high school. I've been trying to beat 6 minutes since then and today I finally did it...on a treadmill. I'm pretty sure I could have done better, but for some reason the treadmill couldn't get to the 11mph I set it to and kept shifting between 9.8 and 10.5 mph. Not really sure what was up with that, but it kept saying "max speed cannot be reached." I don't know if it was my fault or the machines, but either way I made the mile in under 6 minutes, which is all I care about.
