Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I love this nnoying thread!!
Hey Jonesy... wasn't too tired during race from the previous workouts. The 1ks didn't do me in too bad. You've got to remember, I'm only 37! LOL!! What is really doing me in is the long runs. Doing these 15 milers kill my knees and hips and lower back. Feet are doing good. I can't wait until I'm strong enough to where these 15 milers don't hurt too bad. I will say this though... I can tell they are increasing my strength. Coupled with the speed work this seems to be a great way to get faster and have that extra gear when racing the last 400m. Back in the day, I never did 15 milers as training for the 800m and 1500m.
With your consecutive 100+ mile weeks you ought to be strong as an ox. I would think once you start working on the speed, your 1500m time will drop like a rock. Good to see you're hooking up with another group of runners. In addition, thanks for your encouragement. Looking forward to seeing your progress!
Boingo... what are you doing?
Did a 4x1000m interval workout tonight on track. 3min recovery jogs. Awesome weather here in KC area. 62 degrees at 6:00pm. 3:16, 3:15, 3:12, 3:17 - tried a fifth but my legs were wasted.
We're on our way...
