    Is Scovil injured or just stopped posting his runs?

     

    I have e-mailed him a time or 2 and all I hear is silence

      Dear Mr Jeff

       

      I know you put a lot of time and effort into making every blog entry a workout of "Quality", but those of us who like to read it would not mind a few "Junk" entries inbetween quality workouts.  More volume please!

      2013 Goals ~ Mar < 3:00, 5M < 29, 10k < 35  

       

        Dear Mr Jeff

         

        I know you put a lot of time and effort into making every blog entry a workout of "Quality", but those of us who like to read it would not mind a few "Junk" entries inbetween quality workouts.  More volume please!

         

        Ha. I know I am due another entry. I will try. It is hard to keep up the volume and get in stupid arguments on message boards at the same time.

           

          WOW.  Leave out a few relevant details there to make yourself look good there, didn't you?  Like the part where I was on pace for 2:32-2:35 up until I pulled a hip flexor with 10 miles to go? 

           

          You're right, the proof is in the pudding. Your marathon is incredibly soft given your performances over shorter distances.  You ran what, 15:49 in May/June and could only muster a 2:38 by fall?  McMillan would give around 2:33-4 which, even if optimistic, you had all summer to build towards.  Looks like backwards progress to me, especially given your volume.  You have a low-15 5K PR and have never mustered better than a 2:38. 

           

           

          Hey douche....listen up.  First off, you were on pace for SHIT from the start of your race.  10 out of 10 days you run slower than 2:40 if you go out at the pace you did.  You weren't in shape to run close to 2:32.  Period.  End of story.  I know a bit about dumb racing.  That sir was dumb.  You should have known better.

           

          Also, if you'd get Mr. McMillan's balls out of your mouth you'd realize Jeff ran a 2:35 and not a 2:38.  Pretty darn close to that 2:33-34 range.  Not to mention his 15:49 was on a track, and NOT roads. 

           

          Finally, go fuck yourself...the whole lot of ya.  Fuck running, it's stupid. 

          Thunder smash!

            Hug.

             

              I like the way he called him "Mr. McMillan".  Such civility is lost in today's world.

                Ah, Thunder. He's just pissed because I'm about to pass him in mileage YTD.

                      I can vouch for that.

                        No it's dead.  I'm not a runner anymore anyway.  I just happened across this website today by happenstance. 

                        Thunder smash!

                           

                          No it's dead.

                          Hi Thunder!!


                          Feeling the growl again

                            Your analysis of a race you never witnessed by someone whose training you had elementary exposure to is about as meaningless as Jeff's trying to compare the two based on a biased selection of data points (but not quite).  I've flipped much harder odds that that race. 

                             

                            But it's nice to see you back here jackwagon, you were missed.  I almost took you out of my sig line.  Hope all is settling in well out east.

                             

                            MTA:  Your reference to McMillan is hilarious dude.  With all your hero worshipping of me and all you should know the irony in that comment.

                              Thoughts on what a 1:22:00 half could translate into?  (assuming some sort of decent training)

                               

                              In my experience over the last 12 months:

                               

                              Nov 2009 trained for and ran 1:21:5x and followed it up with a 2:54:5x in April 2010. Got good racing conditions for both of these races.


                              Are we there yet?

                                Man, THUNDER.. if you stopped running.. at least stop by and throw down once in a while.. way to ignite the pulse on this thread.

                                 

                                As for 1:22:33 on the HM = 2:56:30 for me last year @ Baton Rouge.
