Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
My gosh, my body on Friday was acting so fricking weird. Every single joint in my body was aching, but I showed no signs sickness other than body aches(running nose, coughing, etc). After Thursday's workout(205,59,64), I felt weak, extremely fatigued and motionless. I don't think I ever want to put my body through that much pain in practice. I almost did not go to the race Saturday, but I took some excedrin, and I felt a little better.
The race was hell. After the second mile(1023), my body started to shut down mentally and physically. I ended up running 1637-8ish; I did not bother to look at the results.
I can honestly say that I can not wait for this season to be done and over with. We have like 4-5 more meets. I'm running the 15 on Saturday, and I hope to pr...nothing more nothing less. This has been one long season. I just want to start all over again when running was actually enjoyable. I used to not wait to go for a run, but I know have to force my body to get out the door....signs of overtraining, burnout, etc.
Very nice work this weekend, Solo Joe. You will get under 2 this season. I still have not gone under 2...something about that barrier. My teammate almost did yesterday; he came out strong(26,200; 57,400), but lost it mentally when people started passing him with 200 to go. He was 128 at the 600 and ended up running a 201.When I ran 200.56, I had 2 things in mind...57 400 and focus on 500-600. The rest will be in your heart.
Nice weekend of racing, Boingo. lol I'll be happy with a 408 right now.
Jonesy, what kind of times do you expect to hit in your upcoming races? Your volume is incredible.
