Mother of Cats

    YES!  He does IT!

    Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

     

    And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

      Freaking awesome, Brew.  Huge congratulations.  Now you need to get a new half PR that isn't half of a full!

        Congrats BR!

          Brew's going to Beantown!!!!    VERY NICE RACING!

            This might be the shortest, non-vulgar race recap ever. It’s pretty much “I started out at goal pace, ran for like 2.5 hours before realizing I don’t remember much and then I crossed the finish line.”

            2020 Goal: Figure out the problem.

              Everyone I'm tracking sped up significantly on the 1.1K from 20K to the HM mark!  Can't remember if that's a DH coming in to the half mark but for sure there's a lot of people, as well as a relay exchange point, so you get some adrenalin going through there.  BR was under 1:30 for the half.

               

              I think that is some bullshit calculation. No way did I speed up to 6:33/mi pace. 20K is what...12.5 miles? Either the distances were off, or something was rolling hills then pretty flat with a median in the middle, relay exchange on the right and cones squishing everyone together.

                That’s a thing? I figured double dipping was better.  Cost effective to do it in one race. Plus I can tell people how it’s TOTALLY acceptable to PR your half in the first half of a marathon.

                 

                 

                Keen you ready? You’re the last source of entertainment for this crew for the year. I don’t want to hear any excuses about how the weather wasn’t good enough or you didn’t have a pace group to ride along with.

                  Brew - YES! Awesome job snagging those big PRs.

                   

                  Beryl - How's the progressive streak going?


                  I'm totally ready to run the marathon of my life, but the weather is supposed to be mid-40s to start, partly cloudy, with slight wind, and negligible rain chances. So totally not PR weather...

                      Dang Brew, you nailed it, well done.

                       

                      Got an 80 mile week with over 6000 gain.  Got in at 3am after helping with the race and was just dragging all morning.   Decided on dropping out of the competition,  but still got out and continued the 10k run streak.  7th place. I won a dollar.

                        EDIT: If I type my HM PR from yesterday into a calculator online/spreadsheet it says I could run a 3:06 marathon. Weird.

                            I was so excited for brew, I forgot to drop off my week.

                             

                            50 miles and some turnover in the legs!

                            M: 8 easy and strides (7:59)

                            T: 10 : 2 up, 2 x 20:00 tempo (6:35), 2 down - felt solid, HR in the low 160s for tempo, which is about right. Making progress.

                            W: off

                            T: 2 up, 16 x 100 hills, 2 down - this is usually nothing interesting, but I got into the sub-5:00 realm on a couple hills and it was just great to feel some speed in the legs again!!

                            F: 8 easy (7:57)

                            S: 16 "easy" (7:30) - Ran with 5 other people, all sub-3:00 marathoners and we got going a little too quick. Felt good, though. Didn't plan on it, but went to breakfast afterwards. I didn't have a change of clothes or wallet.  So one guy had to buy my breakfast and another lent me his coat because I was shivering in the restaurant. So imagine a pretty skinny, shivering guy with messy hair from the run. It was humorous. I imagine some people in the restaurant thought my friends were just doing a good deed.

                            S: rest

                            Road Mile: 5:19 (2017), 5k: 18:10 (2017), 10k: 37:10 (2020), HM: 1:21:55 (2020), M: 2:57:18 (2018)

                              Brew:  Conversely, if you enter your marathon PR into the McMillan calculator, your HM equivalent is 1:25.  So...maybe you should do something about that.  ;-)

                                Here is what I can come up with:

                                1. Stop using calculators.

                                2. Run ultra marathons so my times look more realistic because longer races are better indicators of performance.

                                3. Call Mr. McMillan and inform him there is an error in his equation.

                                4. Run a half marathon to show prove the internet wrong.
