Track Repeats today. Pretty easy as I only had to do (6) 400's. Ran one with a high school kid and then a 100 with him for his final repeat (It was FAST! :-)

My cold is starting to feel better so hopefully I'll be 100% by Sunday. Now if the weathermen can just get it wrong, as usual, things should be good for the race.

Good run to get those legs moving. Still hoping that forecast changes for you!

From DLTheo on Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 13:51:57 from 76.28.161.119

Man, those last couple are blazingly fast. You might want to think about training for a sub-5:00 mile next.

Joe,

And for you...? Aren't you running the Half?

DL,

That sounds good...do you think it's possible? :-)

From Yasir on Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 16:44:11 from 99.20.240.112

Im glad your cold is getting better.

From Matt Schreiber on Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 21:12:53 from 66.17.102.185

Great choice today. Not too many repeats but you got the legs moving. I think we all need to find a high school kid for our track days.

From SlowJoe on Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 07:39:41 from 168.215.171.129

Yeah, I am, but I would be more ticked if I was doing a marathon. I can't PR the half right now even with perfect weather so not as big a deal...

From JG on Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 12:58:12 from 99.141.151.28

Nice track work ... Good luck Sunday Preston! & Joe!!

From derhammer on Thu, Nov 14, 2013 at 09:42:03 from 64.245.52.2

Good luck guys, looks like it still won't be as warm/humid as when I ran the half 2 years ago. Still, would have been nice if the cold front would have shifted 3-4 days. That's Texas for you. It can almost be counted on these days. Joe, don't sell yourself short. You can PR man.
