MM#209 / JapanJoyful#803
My other complaint with these long runs is that my shoulders/neck get stiff. Any good ideas on how to avoid this?
just seein' if being in shape from winter ski racing in those days was good enough to run annual marathons
since 1977 and triathlons of all distances to IM since 1978 without that much, if any, training. Yippee, it was.
"During a marathon, I run about two-thirds of the time. That's plenty." - Margaret Davis, 85 Ed Whitlock regarding his 2:54:48 marathon at age 73, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle."
Good runs to all this morning!
Temp was 26 with 30-35 mph wind.
I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.
I did go and thank the desk clerk in Delta's lost luggage area since she was so nice to me and could see I was fighting back tears (hardly dignified for this "tough" 43 yr. old marathoner). She smiled and said she was rarely thanked in her job. Circle complete.
Trails are hard!
Need a fast half for late fall. Then I need to actually train for it.
Thankyou Tet. I have never admitted this to anyone, but I am a big ChiRunning fan.
