    an easy 6 for me this morning. Looking forward to manning a water station at the NY half this weekend. Even though I will have to wake up at 5am on a Sunday.

    5.3 for me in 38:36. Started off a bit creaky but settled into form after a couple of miles, finished strong.

    Completely forgot I was signed up for the NYC half until an hour or so ago. Any last minute tips? I'm at least going to attempt it and can always end up walking.

    M: 6.05 miles in 40:24
    PM: 10 x .25 mile hill repeats with .25 jogging recovery 2 mile warm up and cool down
    15 total for the day
    this was one of the hardest workouts I have ever done, literally gasping for breath and praying for the strength to keep going. Averaged something like a 5:15 pace on the 400's, but I am getting faster.
    Working with the track club has been legit.

    Thomas-Good luck man. You have gotten damn fast.

    I had a new PR for 5K today-22:27. Not sure where this speed is coming from.
    The new diet really is kicking in I guess, plus Im shedding a few pounds a week.
    the PF is getting much better, woke today with no pain in one foot and very little in the other.


    Congrats on the PR! I don't think mine is much different though - at the moment I seem to only have one gear. Also glad to hear that the new diet is yielding benefits - you've got remarkable discipline to make that happen. Good luck on your upcoming races.

    Today, I wanted to run 8, but circumstances conspired against me and by the time I was ready to roll I only had time for 2.7. I decided to lace up the racers and see how fast I could go, and then I went one more loop just to see if I could swing it. When the dust cleared, I ran 4 miles in 27:31, with my last loop being the quickest. Strangely I was off my form this morning, too. weird.

    9.2 today @7:05 min miles . . .
    The adizeros are digging into the top of my right foot, so I switched them out after half a mile for my speedstars. I am kind of bummed out about the way the overlay is on the manas because it is killing my foot, but I love the sole of the shoe.
    I am thinking of trying the Mizuno Wave Musha 3

    6.5 mills in central park in 57 minutes. Felt really good and definitely feel I'll be able to at least run the entire NYC half.

    Hit my trails today....I have some pretty stunning pics of wild life.
    Anyhow, 7.5 in 55 minutes.
    I bonked hard at about 5, not doubt due to the diet. Prior, I would bonk at mile 13. This was a full on, nothing left moment. Pulled out of it, focused on form and cadence and made it out the other side.
    Im so happy it was 68 degrees out!!!!!

    Got really lucky today! Found a pair of Asics Hyperspeed 3's for 40 bucks. I think I am going to pick up a few more pairs, because the shoe seems to be exactly what I have been looking for. It is flat, light, spacious in the toebox, flexible but not like a noodle and the upper is very comfortable without any weird stitching or overlay. Just ran a nice 8.2 mile at approximately half marathon pace and a little faster. Splits: 1\t00:06:43\t1.00\t06:43 2\t00:06:27\t1.00\t06:27 3\t00:06:26\t1.00\t06:26 4\t00:06:24\t1.00\t06:24 5\t00:06:24\t1.00\t06:24 6\t00:06:25\t1.00\t06:25 7\t00:06:16\t1.00\t06:16 8\t00:06:07\t1.00\t06:07 9\t00:01:05\t0.20 05:34 the new shoes felt great, a huge relief after serious discomfort with my Adizero mana's here are some pics: [​IMG] Here are the new Hyperspeeds [​IMG] here are the Adizero's - the plastic eyelets combined with the stitching on the three adidas bars yields a podiatrists dream shoe . . . Not only are the laces inflexible but the plastic pieces literally drag into your feet. Here is another pic of the Hyperspeeds including the bottom where there are ventilation holes/soles that look like they will last about 200 miles Sorry for the long post!

    Sam - now you've done it: I got nostalgic for my old Mizuno Mavericks. Ended up ordering a pair of last season's Miz Inspire. Certainly cheap enough ($50) so we'll see if they're all that.

    Yesterday I was reading about increasing speed and adding to your capacity to tolerate suffering...and the short of it was that the author recommended to bang out two near-race-effort runs a week. So I decided to spend Friday's session doing intervals. Well, it turned out to be more of a fartlek, random longish intervals at faster paces - and it was pretty taxing. I ended up covering 4 miles in 28:14, but it was fairly punishing at times.

    Today: I went out for an easy recovery run and still covered 4 miles in 29:41.
