6 miles We get to the high school earlier than 6 am now, the new "plan" is to arrive at 5:45 am, park near the entrance gate, and do the warmup jog on Alton. That worked today, I ran with Gary and Seth for a little over a mile. When the guard arrived (a tad … Continue reading Is it 6 am yet?
5 miles - Today I wore John's track spike shoes to the workout. We watched the IAAF London World Championships, taking place in the rain. I wondered what that would be like, John reminded me he had his spikes in the closet - so why not try that route. This was my first time running with … Continue reading Track with spikes

Everyone is running fast and I'm breathing considerably hard to get this done and stay where I belong. Attila, fresh off his 19:01 5k in NYC and Aldo are who … Continue reading Miss Ya Thrice
6.5mi - A cool morning with a sunrise that makes people feel they are late for work. And a timed mile interval, which I hadn't done in months. I thought I was slowing, I haven't run with any person or grop consistently at the track so that lack of "competition" leads me to think I … Continue reading Who knew?
4 mi. I met Erica early and we did the warmup a tad faster than most. We ran and talked with Tom Matese, his son did a 17:12 in the state championship last week! Erica's workout was to do twelve 400m repeats at 1:35 pace. We did the first one in 1:38, and every other … Continue reading I’ll take a dozen 400s to go.
4 mi. With a surprisingly cool morning, we still pull only 12 guys and Randy Garvey for the track workout. Something must have been happening in the daytime at Benjamin High School, because the sidelines had all the hurdles out and three white party tents were setup along the field. Paul ran the intervals, so … Continue reading Nested 1000s
