Happy New Year to all, I hope you have a good year of running in 2010.
I also hope you have set some goals for yourself. My first goal is a 3:04 and age group win at Los Angeles on March 21. Beyond that, I'm not sure, but I would like to run a good 10k and/or half marathon later in the spring and maybe also in the fall. I'd like to be on top of a few categories in my age group in the Younger Legs for Older Runners rankings.
My year finished, and began, with a nice week of training.
Actually wanted to run 20, but only had time for 12, so ran at a faster pace.
PM: 8k@5:11 (6 pairs of 110m/60m hills, running hard up each hill)
This is a recovery run.
16k with 8k at Marathon Pace.
8k@5:29 (43:53). 8k@4:21 (34:45) 4:17/30/21/23/24/20/13/15.
Successful MP run! Ate and drank a lot yesterday, but felt ok. Legs a bit tired, but holding the pace was not a problem.
Temp: 8C/46F, sunny
4k warmup in 21:29, then 5ks in 25:03/24:36/24:16/23:08. Last 2k: 4:30, 4:23
Felt good. Wanted to run 5:00 pace or faster, so was happy with the run.
Temp: 9C/48F, sunny
Monday - Rest
Each day, my left knee is stiff on stairs and for about 800m of the run, then it's ok. Strange...
Total for week: 112km/70mi, 9:39.
