Monday- 13.2 miles- 1:45 with 5x striders after
This is one of those pretty plan / boring / merely existing days. It is not bad, it is not great, just average. But, Average is better than below right?! Last night was a good run as it felt very smooth and the laps rolled on by without any aches or pains. I must be getting stronger. 25 laps of the base in the last 5 days.
I have been inspired recently by the exploits of the great Henry Rono who last weekend ran a 17:48- 5k at the rip age of 55. Wow, that makes me feel slow! But, he once held the 5k world record with a 13:08 so I suppose it is all relative! Henry incredibly held the 3k, 5k, 10k , and 3k steeplechase world records at the same time setting them in an 81 day span in 1978. He had fallen on hard times after his great running feats ended becoming an overweight homeless alcoholic. His resent comeback has been chronicled nearly daily on the letsrun.com message boards.
