>Look What I Can Do!>Sub 17 5k!
Sweet. I remember when sub 5 was still on your plate. Great work.
I'm debating tacking a crack at sub-17 this spring/summer. I ran 17:00 in 2004 and that one second has haunted me ever since.
As a 37-year old who just got back into running in '07, I find this particularly inspirational. I haven't been in sub-17 shape since 1995, but you've got me believing I can do it. Looking at your log, you've also got me believing I need to run more miles.
I've got a fever...
My only recommendation would be to set incremental goals as you continue your training... sub 20 min, sub 19, etc.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Good point! I'm already in sub-20 shape, and am aiming for sub-19 in a race in a couple weeks. Sub-18 is my goal for the year, and sub-17 is the goal for next year.
I had your mom as a goal, and I met that one already. What should I shoot for next, globule?
I've got a sister.
Sorry, Chris. No thread is safe from the Scout/Globule running joke.
That's great. Think of what you can do with more training, and more focussed training. Having got back into running just before age 30, I enjoyed a similar renaissance. In fact, it is possible to greatly exceed any accomplishments you had in HS if you believe in yourself, train well, and do all the little things that you need to do to get there.
Nice!!! You're collecting hardware every time out.
I was looking at your log. What incline do you use for the TM???
I'm using 1.5 incline right now for most TM runs, but sometimes like to lower it to 1 so I can go faster. I can go alot faster with no incline, but I read it could mess up your form somewhat, but every once in a while I'll do it bc I want my legs to stride further.
Yes, I contemplated not saying anything.
But.....the siren song of a Jeff's mom joke was just too strong.
Thanks. I hope you're right! Looks like it's worked out well for you... although I'm not sure I'll have the time to log 300+ mile months. Wow!
