Chiming in on another question/post re the new terrain by your house and on which you are now training: I could be completely wrong, but I think it is really going to benefit you and take you over the hump by forcing you to get out of your comfort zone (MAF-- which you yourself have said you need to do to maximize your condition for marathon as opposed to Ironman--as well as forcing to focus on recovery runs so you can absorb the hard work. Keep up the good work!
Iron- I believe you.. I think I'll do well up here.
The new image & text are great. You have a knack for that for sure and I agree with ironboom. you're going to become a monster (u already r - u know what i mean). Man, think what you could do to a 50 mile mountain race. . .thanks for training again :-)
Thanks Matt- The header quote. I was talking to one of my athletes yesterday- explaining one of his prescribed workouts to him- and that phrase spilled out. I am on the fence with focusing on mountain races... I'll for sure eventually end up there, but I still want to run a fast marathon on the roads. Cheers
Hi Tim, I've never aspired for fast marathon, and so publicly, as You seem to do. 2.20 is pretty exclusive goal, but You seem to have a good shot. Mountain races will still be there in a few years from now. Keep focused on flat and fast and then You might wanna consider going long and hilly, albeit a little slower. No one will ever know what is the best preparation for any given event. The results only tell you about the finishing times, but not about the feeling inside - satisfaction or regrets. So keep on going/running, Claus Bech, Denmark
