Today I went for a run with what seemed like the whole state. Justin and I met at Newton North to do a 4 mile warmup to Heartbreak hill. We headed down walnut to beacon and took it east towards BC. My goodness were there a lot of runner's coming at us. It must have been a run for the cure or team in training group. They were everywhere.
Once at the hill we did 8 x 200m heartbreaks in 44, 44, 44, 43, 43, 42, 42, 42. Felt good to be outside again doing some work. It was cold though, 23 on car temperature gauge.
Did the same 4 mile cool-down.
No evening run, so begins the taper for Armagh and Ras Na hEirann.
Congratulations to ex-reebok bostoner Rebecca Donahue who ran a stellar 4:21 this evening at Reggie Lewis which was good for 8th place in the 1500 at USATF Indoor Nationals.
