Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
4.1M w/u (32:50), 1.1M c/d.
5M solo tempo-26:43 (21 sec pr)
-5:26,5:25 (10:51),5:26 (16:17),5:20 (21:37 4M pr), 5:06.
last three in 15:52. last four miles in 21:08, a pr also.
48 deg. took me 21 years to break 27 (counting from when I started racing 8k/5M in college). started out close to pr pace so decided to take a shot at it. at my age, you take the pr's when you can get them, because you don't know if you'll ever be ready to get them again. (yeah, I know that workout pr's and enroute pr's don't count, but nurmi and zatopek got a bunch of them). probably a good rule for any age. after the marathon, there's no way that I'll have a good shot at a pr for probably 6 weeks. felt pretty good the whole way through except struggling for the last .3-.4 after screaming obscenities at dog owners who had their dog unleashed by the bike path, forcing me to slow a little and run through a huge puddle right next to the dog, which didn't bite me probably because I sounded like a madman. that was a little exhausting. otherwise, a good run in heavy trainers and maybe the great goal of a sub-26 in a race will be possible next year.
