Yes... I distinctly remember saying that I wasn't interested in track workouts. I met up with Justin, GZ, and the elusive and rare Bob. Justin ran a 5 mile TT and dropped us immediately and Bob and I just ran what felt OK. We ended up with 2 miles in 11:13 and 1 mile in 5:41. I felt easy and relaxed but I think Bob was on the ropes and I even think I heard a little whimper from him... another win for me. Either that or the wily old man is lulling me in to a false sense of security and will beat me at Leadville by another time zone.
Bob gently reminded me that I am probably screwing up again in pushing too hard too soon and I agree which is partly why we only ran what we did. I tend to get super fit super quick and I know that in the past I tried to focus for too long on a single race. I think I only need maybe 8 weeks of focused race specific training and I almost always try for twice that. My first 'A' race (Leadville is my second) is still a few months away and I need to temper my effort right now. Yesterday was another big day and I was on for well over 100 for the week but I'm going to bag the rest of today and cut tomorrow's run short too. Thanks Bob.
