8M on the TM at the gym this morning as it was blowing snow/sleet outside...not happenin'! 2.5M easy (6:40) then the rest of the way around 6:20 except for one 0.5M pickup at 5:30. Overall felt good, actually better after the run than before. (Stratos 2)
Supposed to warm up and stop snowing/raining today so I hope to get about 6M in at lunch. I just checked out the results from the Shamrock Marathon from Sunday, which I almost ran...dang it, dang it! Master's winner was a 2:46...could have been the Master's winner in a big race (and maybe even top 5!). Oh well, hindsight is 50/50 (and the pocket book appreciated it) and I gotta remember that Boston is the goal race for this spring. Shamrock 2010...here I come (and watch some really fast master's show up next year...seems that I run my spring marathons 1 year off either way preventing me from getting a higher placement).
6M at lunch around the greenbelt. 42 degrees, cloudy and about 13mph wind...ok day for running. Nice easy run at avg. 6:54 pace, left hammy a bit sore so I didn't push anything. I tried to focus on running with more toe-off and no worries about turnover rate and when it hit, my effort was easy and the pace was good. (T2)
