Yesterday’s Run

I did an easy lap around the wet leaf covered trail at Shadyside Park in Anderson. The trail was fairly empty with temperatures around 52 with some strong winds.  I picked it up for the final 1/4 mile and completed the 2.64 lap in 18:42.  I finished the workout with a couple of accelerations.  I have some slight pain in the ball of my left foot.

    Step-N-Stride 5k:Nice course that travels through a park, over a foot bridge, through back streets, over a bridge and finally up a small hill to the finish line.Having a big building to get out of the cold, warm up in and receive awards in afterwards was nice.With a quarter mile to go, there were 2 runners a little ahead of me and one I could hear behind me. I was contemplating whether or not I had a kick and whether or not I could catch the two runners ahead of me. Then I saw a hill and decided to save my kick for the top of the hill (about 80 yards from the finish). After the hill I decided that I should resign myself to holding my place… until the younger runner behind me started to kick. Something competitive kicked in and I accelerated with him. I ended up holding him off and also passing a runner at the finish line. The other runner finished just .6 seconds ahead of me. The runner I caught at the finish line turned out to be in my age group, and as a result I finished first. All thanks to the young man who pushed me.Started running again in April of 2006 after 20 years of only playing soccer. At this point I am learning that reducing my times has a lot to do with my mental frame of mind as well as conditioning. During the races I convince myself that I am exhausted and now I am not sure if I really was. Started training in July after an injury and have run three races: Labor Day (hot) 20:15, 10/6 – 19:29(PR), 11/10 – 19:03 (PR). My goal is 18:36, mostly because my son says there’s “no way”. Any ideas on how I should train to get another 9 seconds/mi faster? Or maybe these constraints are all in my head.Splits for the race: 1 mile – 6:00, 2 mile: 6:21, last 1.1: 6:05 pace. Looks like, for starters, I need to focus on that 2nd mile.

    Thanks for letting us know about the Step-N-Stride race. It sounded like a fun event. Congrads for winning your age group and catching the guy at the finish!! That is always a nice feeling, even if it took a younger guy to push you through. I agree that alot of the problem is mental, I struggle with that alot. That's why I enjoyed the 800 in college, it was over quickly and the mind didn't have much room to yell at you! Without knowing your specific training schedule I can't guarantee to help you knock out those 9 seconds. But some proven strategies might be tempo runs, hill work, longer interval training, and adding some accelerations. E-mail me a little more about the workouts you've been doing if you'd like more specific help!
