Legendary day

7:45 AM - 7 miles, 43:15 - Rockland 7.
7:10 PM - 5 miles, 40:50 - Westboro.

Comments: AM - Fartlek: 1-minute pickups at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 minutes. Finished up the last mile over Malvern Road in 5:29. Energy levels much better this morning. PM - Easy run from the store with Larry Olsen. Definitely over 5 miles but not quite 6, and I don't do halves, so this of course gets rounded down. Great run - never a dull moment when Larry Legend is around.

I'm officially in survival mode until sometime on Saturday, possibly, and likely, longer than that. Sit tight, I'll be back -- eventually.

Quote of the Day

"This race killed me, but not until the last 3 miles."
- Ed Baker, on the USATF National 50K Trail Championships last Sunday. Fast Eddie came back to life quickly, however, completing an 8-mile tempo run at 5:12 pace just two days later.
