Some of our local B.A.A. runners are here explaining our viewpoint of running on the roads this time of year as the Boston Marathon approaches.
Sunday: starting at B.C. against the wind and uphill to mile 4, wanted to quit there, turned running back to mile ten for a total of 23 miles.
Positive note is pace ~7;40/mile average an improvement from last long run of 18 @ 8:20/mile. Next day--total rest and the long toe blackened!
Tuesday intervals, 5 x 1 mile, stepped each 10 seconds down from 6:30 to 5:50. Yoga stretch helped later, new Brooks Defyance sans orthotics not a good choice. Staying out of the snow storm- running on the Woodway-good choice!
