FRIDAILIES: Because We Said So, That's Why! (Read 87 times)

    I finished my runniversary 11 miles and might of accidentally turned a normal MLR into a little pseudo-progressive run. This was one of those effortless runs that the legs just wanted to go. I ended up with an average pace of 7:45 running outside in a feels like temp of 18 (with 10 mph winds) ... glorious night for a run!

    Train smart ... race smarter.

      Evening, Dailies!  It's late already, and I didn't sleep enough last night so I won't bore y'all with a long-winded post!

       

      Basya, congrats on the full marathon. I hope you enjoyed it. I did glance at your RR, but I didn't give it a good thorough read yet.

       

      It's hard to keep up with everybody at times.

       

      SRD for me today. Tomorrow will probably be a TM evening, just to get a few miles in for the week.

        Hi dailies:

         

        Thursday - just 3.8 regeneration miles after getting to attend a video conference with Meb.  It was very interesting;  I'd previously read about how his family left Eritrea as refugees, but to hear him talk of those experiences firsthand, live, was pretty moving.  I also got the sense that running as an elite requires complete devotion -- like he wanted to relate to people's questions but was kind of on another plane.  Talking about running a sub-5 mile during a marathon because he wanted to catch a particular competitor.

         

        Tonight - 8.5 steady-state miles, 6:47 pace.   I felt fast and dropped well under 5K pace for the last 800m or so.  Not a common training indulgence, but maybe it was a daydream of being an elite, if only for a couple minutes.

          That is fast.  Nice job.  I feel like an elite for 100m Big grin
