Today’s foray into the realm of speed involved 500 metres (1:44) and 4 x 100 metres, with the last timed at 16.8 secs. This is precisely 7 seconds slower than the Olympic champion ran last night to win the gold …Continue reading

Another 3:38 kilometre this morning, although I did feel I ran it easier this time. In fact, I negatively split it, which always means less pain. Today’s memories from the world run are from northern Wisconsin, as I made my …Continue reading

Another 74 sec 400 metres this morning. Maybe I’ve hit my limit, but I’m not going to stop trying to it get down under 72 secs (3 minute per km pace). It doesn’t seem that long ago I was running …Continue reading
