Welcome to My Training Grounds

11 miles + Strides + Yoga · Comments Off on Welcome to My Training Grounds

11 miles. 70min. Strides

11 miles + Workout · No Comments

Today more big stories happened that I have time to tell about but it started with a good workout with Matt Elliot and his buddy John at South Eugene Track (John, by the way, might be one of the country’s biggest track fans, road tripping from San Diego with some friends to watch Pre earlier this year). The workout was one of his design and I just tagged along but it fit the format I was used to. The idea was 5k at 5:10 down to 4:50 pace. Get the legs good and tired. Then slap on the spikes for 10×200 at almost all out (like 25-26). Full recovery in between. Continue reading »

WTF is this?

This is my little space in which to play. I ramble about what it's like to...
· Run a 3:57 Mile | 3:39 1500m.
· Build sweet websites.
· Live in Wellington, NZ
  Charlottesville, VA
  Santa Cruz, CA
  Boulder, CO.
· be convicted of grammar crimes.
If you're intrigued...
This is what to expect.
