Anticipation

All the workouts are geared toward the 5k race. It will all depend on how the runners who are racing look when they exit their cars in the morning.

That’s the response I got about potential workouts for tomorrow. I cannot wait.

Reading The Perfect Mile by Neil Bascomb, about the quest of three runners to break the 4:00 mile barrier. If you ever needed any kind of inspiration or were just curious about the training that went into this, the book is a great read.

Each of the runners is compelling in their way — Santee’s brutal childhood, Bannister’s scientific rigor — but the story of John Landy has really captured this reader’s imagination. Based on a few words from Emil Zatopek, Landy just kills his training in solitary late night runs and emerges… Powerful stuff.
