24 Hour Ultra Marathon

Around the Lake 24 Hour Ultra Marathon starts this Friday at 7 pm and my best friend is running.

It seems like yesterday that I trodded the lake path myself, it's been six years. To this day I say you won't get me to do it again. Although the next year I did go back and set the marathon course record. Those were the days.

Anyhow show up and lend a little support; I'll be there no doubt getting a long run in myself.

Last night was a futile attempt to break 17:00 at the Devens 5K. I came up as 1st Master and 2nd overall. It's a good thing there was another runner pulling me as submission to the heat and humidity is easy. 1st mile - 5:37, second mile 5:35 and then crawled the hill to drag down the time for the finish in 6:48 1.2 mile for an overall 18:01.

Tuesday was Rob deCastella's 8 x 400s with a 200 meter float. This was sub-20 something, possibly sub-19 for a total of 5000 meters. Might be a good weekly evaluation workout.

Monday called for an easy three miles on the treadmill.

  1. Just found your blog site and enjoy reading it. You have some impressive running credentials and your training volume is very solid. Seems like you get a lot from your running, and that's what many of us enjoy--only you're faster than most of us. It's fun watching talented runners progress. Good luck getting ready for your next race. I post with another running friend, Amy, and we’ll look forward to reading more of your site and following your progress. Keep up the good running and posting! Tom
