I gut nuthin'

Talk about drawing a blank. I've been sitting pretty for a few minutes now trying to come up with something to comment on but there doesn't seem to be anything even remotely interesting worth mentioning. So let's see, where to go from here?

Well, the most real-life answer I can give to that question is to the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. We have a workout scheduled for 7 p.m. - our last solid effort before the GBTC meet this weekend. I'm not sure what to expect tonight, but my best guess is that Kevin will have us distance whores run 3-4 miles of intervals somewhere in the neighborhood of 3-5 minutes in duration. This, however, is purely speculation.

Speculating even further, I'm wondering what the over/under is on tonight's total attendance figure at the Reg. Last week there were no fewer than six teams and 35 people on the track at the same time. The odds out of Vegas this morning are a +/- 10 on last week's numbers, which in all likelihood means another three-ring circus in Roxbury. Who needs Barnum & Bailey?

And sadly, that's gonna do it for this entry. I need more material to work with in order to spruce up these entries a bit, so with the day off from work tomorrow, I'll make that my mission and try to stir up some excitement. In the meantime, any suggestions/recommendations are greatly appreciated. Off to practice, take it easy all.

I don't know if this is anything to write about in the future, but a few thoughts/questions...

What's the deal with these Wed. workouts - does just anyone and everyone show up, or is there some rule about who can/cannot come and when and why? Seems like a lot of (all) the local studs show up. Is there an element of racing actually going on there and is that good or bad for training?

Are you still running for BAA?

Have you seen some of the workouts by Ed Baker and Nate Jenkins? (Thanks for the links to their logs, too by the way.) The 41-miler by Ed and the supercompensation 37 mile day on the track for Nate are unbelieveable. I'm not sure which is more impressive, and I'd feel ridiculous picking one.

What will be your first road race of '06?

Take care,
Greg Ward
