Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop this annoying thread until I reach my goal.
ron, great race! maybe a little zatopek effect there, but hard to believe you would run that fast after two weeks of sickness. were you taking adequate recovery before your previous races? I had a lousy turkey trot, because I hadn't run any speedwork or tempos since before the marathon. I also didn't get any warmup (31 degrees out) before the race because we got there just in time. 17:26, 7th out of 890, 1st in 30-39. 5:29/6ish/5:24/32--all splits rough or estimated. the second mile was very hilly. This wasn't my usual turkey trot--I didn't want to wait around until Saturday. I'm still out of shape and have been struggling to run 8 minute pace, although I ran a bunch of 6:30s today and averaged 7 for ten miles, running with a fast guy. 70 for the week after 66, 59, and 0. 10k race next Saturday in Central Park. I have low expectations, hopefully sub-36, doubtful that I'll beat 35. I'm not expecting to be in good shape for another month or so.
incidentally, the storm, whoever that is, posted my training week from mid-June. I don't know why.
Let us know how you do right off the bat, Boingo. Can't tell from your workouts what kind of shape you're in.
