Subject: RE: 50+ Masters Training and Racing Open Forum
Another good week of 15 miles in 5 days. Iím thankful my knee allows me to run pain free now. As planned I had my first tentative track workout and it went well. The big change was moving to running at work for lunch. Previously I ran trails to heal the knee but with it getting dark after work I switched as I have no interest running the woods at night. I was surprised that, if anything, the knee responded well. Keeping the miles low but the tempo up seems to be the key. Essentially I warm up a mile, press a mile, and cruise/recover the last mile. I have no slow days. I have no idea what to expect from here as this is a total experiment. But I plan to increase the track duration on Sat and increase the middle-mile pace during the week.
Sorry for your loss lucKY2b.
On age grading, muddy girl, it seems that all-important ďAge standardĒ value skews the results if there are not enough samples (such as a distance not frequently raced). Or, the opposite, itís just like school where we are graded on a curve and there is always some smarty-pants that blows the curve for the whole class. In our M 50-54 group, thank you very much Mr. David Martin Rees for your 14:53 5K. That is amazingly awesome, though.
I donít mind age grading, but I donít think itís a good idea to base awards on it. The 100 year old is gonna win every time!
