My friend Nelly (The Shoutout King) handed this baton to me, so now it's my turn to step up to the plate and field some questions. As this 2 week old tradition goes, no question is off limits. If you can think it, I can answer it. Ask me a funny question, maybe I can give a funny (yet truthful) answer.
Do you want to know:
- What barnyard animal has been staying in our house?
- How I met Mrs. 2Slow?
- Have I ever ran naked?
- How many miles I've logged in a year/lifetime?
- What is my homeopathic cure for sinus infections?
In the meantime, and possible question material, here's my latest Pikes Peak training log:
|Pikes Peak Training Log|
|7/18||5||4 miles of 3 - 12% incline, variable pace|
|7/19||5||3 of the miles ranged from 3 - 12% incline|
|7/20||7||3 mile warm-up, last 4 miles @ 10% incline, 13:20 pace|
|7/21||10||flat, 8 min/mi|
|7/22||4||flat, 9 min/mi recovery run|
|7/23||14||4 mi warm-up, 10 miles @ 11% incline, 13:20 pace|
Normally 45 miles/week would barely make the grade for me. However, I have to keep telling myself that most of those miles were done on a slope of over 10%, and running 4.5 mph just doesn't add up as fast as running 7 or 8 mph. The 14 miler took me 3 hours to do, and has given my a bit of confidence for PP as my taper time is nearing.
