I could not maintain the pace after 1k, and came in 2k at 7:03. A far shot from 6:40.
First 5 laps (200 meter track) I was tracking 38-42 seconds. Came in the mile at 5:36 and sucked wind for the last 200 meters.
It was fun. My buddy Jim Sheehan was there doing one of his final workouts before next weeks big events, and his buddy Bod (former Moundview HS coach) was there timing us. Many of you probably know him.
It was a good time, and good to get a real scenario trail on a measured course. Have not done track work in A LONG time.
I am thinking of going back to Irish for a day 10 Miler as a benchmark from last year (yes, Steve, I was already thinking it).
A full response to all of the skeptics tonight or tomorrow.
I was actually under the impression that only 3-4 people even read this darn thing anymore. Thanks for everybody's "concerns".
Oh yeah...... those of you comparing me to Adam at Superior last year failed to mention that I dropped out of the race too. Does that mean my high mileage training was flawed? Ahhh.... gas on the fire
