20 miles in 2:40:00
4 miles in 32:40
First 50 mile week ever.
I am now positive that I will have nothing to write about in the future when I am not breaking new ground with these "firsts" every week.
7 weeks left. 50 days till the marathon. I should get a countdown clock on here.
I am scheduled to hit 1000 miles right before the taper.
The Taper! Still thinking/reading about that. Unofficially beginning on Oct 1st, immediately following the Sept 30th fitness test. This will give 17 days of taper. Hmmm...Still thinking/reading/getting advice from Ace...
NEW U.S. mens 5K record!
Dathan Ritzenhein ran 12:56.27 in Zurich to break the 13 year old American record of 12:58.21 by Bob Kennedy.
That's a bit over 4:10/mile for 3.1 miles.
Very fast. Especially his last 800m in 2min flat. Watch the race and interview here.
