  1. By looking at this photo only, rank in order the top four runners. Let’s see if anyone gets it right.
  2. Loop back to the house for Freeze Pops.
  3. Yeah, that makes sense. I was also thinking of Carmel ‘19 when you dialed it back a little and ended up doing fine. If you crash and burn it would be because you ignored the early warning signs.
  4. You have a lot of experience pacing and running non-A race “fun” marathons. I’m sure if you run by feel you’ll manage just fine.
  5. Fast Cat 10K Race Report As I mentioned the other day, this is a small race (68 10K runners, 138 5K runners). However, there was certainly competition so that was nice. Because of COVID, this was run in waves. The first wave consisted of high school students. This race benefits a high school track team and starts and finishes at a high school. They took off at a quick pace. Most of them seemed like track/cross country runners although some clearly were not. My wave was a combination of “elites” (non high schoolers who asked to be in this wave) and 10-K relay teams (2 X 5K)
  6. Thanks but my watch's heart rate monitor isn't always accurate. I think it went crazy there at the end. I got over 170 though which is very rare for me. Last few miles were very tough. It's been so long since I raced that I kind of forgot what that feels like.
  7. If you run 40 miles a week and do the strength stuff you mention, you’ll be in excellent shape this fall. Actually what you would be doing would be similar to what I’ve been doing the last 9 months or so (although I’ve been averaging about 50 per week). I fully get not wanting to commit to a race now but keep an open mind. I suspect you’ll have some good runs and think “Hey, I think I’m ready to race.”
  8. For volume this year, what type of weekly mileage are we talking here?
  9. Yeah, a three year project should probably have at least three marathons in it.
  10. Considering that you're training for the Boston Marathon, that should be a YES.
  11. Which glorious hotel are you guys booking?
  12. I’m thinking about running Monumental. Are you guys staying overnight on Saturday?
  13. Thanks for asking. Temps will be in the low 40s but it will be windy —13-15 mph. That will hurt my time but I think I’ll be good for under 6:00 still. But who knows for sure. I’ve run this race twice before in 2013 and 2017 as a tuneup for spring marathons. I set PRs both times. Early spring temps and a relatively flat course really help. It’s a joint 5K/10K with the 10K basically being two loops. Race starts in waves due to COVID but I will start in the “elite” 10K wave. “Elite” is kind of funny since it’s so small — max of 300 total and likely less than 100 for the 10K. Howeve
  14. Are you saying we can become irrelevant runners?
  15. I have the belief that someday players will no longer be allowed to be traded without their consent. That's the way we're trending.
  16. Although we all agree that analyzing heart rate data can be valuable, I'm not sure he should start using one less than four weeks away from his race. In fact, I'd recommend against it. Besides some injuries, his training has been going well physically and mentally. Adding a heart rate monitor now and trying to figure out all his zones and stuff can mess with the mind. We've seen that here before. I suppose the case can be made that he should just mainly use it to collect data for now and analyze it in the months to follow. However, I don't think all our brains are wired to do t
  17. Listen to your body. Sounds like you may be recovering OK.
  18. 224 miles for me for March. I guess that's low for me for a 31-day month. But average pace was 7:02 which appears to be my fastest month ever. (Not that I've ever tried for that.)
  19. It should. For hill/bridge, are you doing something like one of these?
