Short Run And That Is All.....

Hope everyone is enjoying this weekend. I had a late afternoon appt. that forced me to skip my workouts yesterday. It was only going to be a short run anyway.....I may continue to swim here in the next week but will try and give this race a proper taper in the last week without too much cross-training in the form of cycling & swimming.

I was surfing around my fave blogs and saw that Zeke had posted a link (unfortunately a broken link) to Pre racing the mile. Sorry to steal your thunder Zeke but you can see the video here. Not the best quality but pretty exciting watching Pre take the lead early, in typical fashion, and hold off the late charge from the milers.

Pre Lives.....gotta represent

My legs felt pretty good today....ran a 5 miler over a course with some rollies....hurt on the hills but those endorphins sure feel good post run! :-)

Nice work Mike. You keep pushing the pace every time I check in. Been out with computer issues, but nice to see you FINALLY got a massage. Oh, the glory...! Don't let her go too hard on you a few days before the race... 5:45's??? Man, oh, man.

Dude, You are amazing. 5 miles in 33:41? If I wasn't sore from my run today, I would bow down to you.

Sweet time on the 5 miles. I am trying to get some faster runs like that as well. Right now I have been sticking with 3 milers while my mileage is low.

Thanks all....yes, running a 5 miler at this pace isn't too bad....just wish I could run 26 miles in a row at that pace! ;-)

Don't feel bad about stealing my thunder. Thanks for posting the other Pre stuff. Pretty cool.

Nice 5 miler!
