Hello, all you superhip peoples:
From a personal perspective, things are going well. As an Arthur Lydiard expert (flex) I am doing my first Lydiard cycle in about 14 years and am enjoying the heck out of it, sorta.
Didn’t build too much of a base (aerobic) because I kept getting calf pulls at 60-miles or 100K-ish-per-week, so down around 30-45-miles or 50-70K now(tough speaking two languages, Imperial and Metric, but nevertheless). Went through the hill phase barely unscathed. And now nearly finished the anaerobic phase. One more workout, then onto time trials and racing. Let’s see how this goes. My goal is just to bang off some 5K races and see if I can get around 20:30-20:59.99999999 – ha-ha. My master’s best is 17:58 from age 42 and now at 55 (going on 2, I am an emotional toddler), I hope to get close to the age-grading equivalent performance level. That’s rich, though. Realistically I can run around 22-flat at this time and the racing will start in a month…..
All is good [touch wood, lucky rabbit’s foot etc — except I think the rabbit is unlucky isn’t it? Having lost a foot?].
So, the Global One-hour Virtual Race is on. Not as many people signed up as last year YET, however, there are some and we have extended the deadline to April 30 to get your time in.
Here is the little confirmation list below. Remember it is just $5 as a suggested donation. $30 if you want a commemorative hat. Proceeds to KidSport, so all kids can play.
How far can you go in an hour?
