I went and did some ten laps on the tracks yesterday with some of the laps being interval runs. Then I went and did hills and tempo runs for 14K.
Today I will go for an easy recovery sort of run.
My knee is now fine. I have the feeling that I am approaching my best shape. I will do an 8K and hit 75kpw. My highest so far. Cheers
This is a scene from the 2009 Boston Marathon. America's Ryan hall, extreme left, and the only white man in the leading pack, who finished third, takes a quick glance at the composition, demeanor, pace and intent of the leading pack.
IAAF has been bitching that Europeans and Americans are losing interest in marathons because East Africans are dominating marathon competitions and the former dont think its worth investing in and organizing a race only to get the 10th or 13th position.
Well, Hall was 3rd. And Americans dominate the sprints (well Jamaica is now owning the sprints) and nobody cried. Work hard like everyone else and stop bitching.
