Not really anything to do with training but everyone should watch this Heather girl from Minnesota in the 600m………tough!!!
Friday 3/7/08- quick team meeting followed by an easy run- weather was horrible- rainy and cold- core after as a team.
Saturday 3/8/08- easy run oyo (on your own). Weather was warm but rainy. Hopefully kids all watched track or were perusing Flotrack to watch Indiana State’s Erica Moore run the 6th fastest time in D1 at 2:05.7 and Indiana State’s Men’s DMR qualify for Nationals.
Practice at 12:00 PM at Alexander Rd. and the DnR canal- Turning Basin Park. Directions to Park here It was the Tale of Two Long runs- it was the best of times, it was the worst of times,Brian hit 15 in 90:00- it seems about half of us had cruddy runs and the other half got great work in. I got in as many kids as I could- here’s what I have-the beginners got in about 5 steady miles followed by aone mile repeat harder than their previous pace. Andrew hit 6:20ish, as did B-Unit. Robin hit 7:09 and Lisa Sher hit 6:47. McKee and Mancuso got in about 90 minutes at 6:45 pace followed by 2 miles at threshold for 15 total. Mancuso didn’t feel so well and as evident by his body language was less-than- thrilled to be running the threshold miles-nonetheless he got ’em in and made one more step towards being a champion. Foy hit 80 steady minutes followed by one mile at 6:00.Kellner hit 82 minutes (back 3 minutes faster) and ran her last mile in around 6:00. Keith did 70:00 minutes with his new training partner Grant and ran one mile in a miraculous 5:20 (how does he do it?). Here’s some reading material on Peter Snell and Arthur Lydiard. Others either couldn’t make it because of religious and medical commitments or had some bad stomach cramps that hindered their effort. All in all- Pretty Good day!!!
