Wow. Amazing. Wow. In the 100 meter dash, From 1983 to 2007 th eWR was dropped .19 seconds. Now, Usain Bolt has dropped the record .18 seconds in a little over a year. It's been estimated his 40 yd time would be 3.82 seconds.
As for me, I SUCK at hills. I ran our area's biggest ski hill today, appropriately named "Nutt Hill," (Glaven, I'm expecting great things in the comment section over this) in hopes of going up and down it for an hour. I made it about 35 minutes, 10 times up and down, before rain and fatigue had me walking. I really need to do more of that stuff if I want to get faster. It's as simple as that.
After getting my butt kicked in an hour long "Yoga for Athletes" class (taught by Ellie, who I swear is out to kill me) shortly after leaving Nutts@ck Hill, finished up with about an hour of trail running on the IAT. The new picture up on top is from this run. Man, could I feel those hills again. I can't wait to go back and see if I can hold it together for an hour.
This weekend I'm hoping to put in 4 hours, with the 3rd hour being a fast one. We'll see. My plans are already screwed up a bit, as Ellie and I recently purchased a new sectional couch for our new basement, and after moving I REFUSE to move anything else, so the movers are scheduled to show up "between 8 am and Noon." Great. Thanks.
Luckily, the previous owners of our new residence didn't want to haul their treadmill up the steps, so perhaps the first hour or two will be spent on that, with it at its maxed incline, until the couch arrives and I can hit the trails. Outside of that, GREAT LUCK to SteveQ and Helen at Lean Horse, and CONGRATS to Glaven for a great trail run, and
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
