OK, now I have read the schedule and I see that it was a "tempo" on a tough course. I am surprised that he runs that much on hills and tough, muddy surfaces. I would think that would not be the way to prepare for running endless kilos at 2:55 on flat pavement?
I realize he and his coach know what they are doing (and know more than I do). I am just surprised.
But when the sun comes out it bakes the ground dry and hard. So maybe the best of both worlds?
