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?
Regarding my 200th marathon in 8:16:36.6 at age 73 compared to Ed Whitlock’s 2:54:48 at age 73 and my first one at 3:52:15 at age 34, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle, . . . . almost like walking"
"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.
