In one week from today, I will be racing a mile against:
- A 27 year old, out of shape, smoker (in his defense he still has some MI state records in swimming on the high school level)
- A 25 year old ex college soccer player. Hasn't worked out since college.
- A 35 year old who runs 2 milesx 5 days a week (around 15:00) and lifts 6 days per week --> who is also known as my fiance. He ran the Turkey Day Mile in 6:56 w/my little brother and wasn't winded.
I'm the most worried about the fiance! But, I don't think that any of them will approach the mile the right way; i.e., they will start SUPER fast!
AND ... the want to do it at lunch (90 degree weather). So, I think that is an advantage to me! :)
Track yesterday was hard. I ran at 6:3oPM instead of AM and it was 85 degrees. The workout was 1200 400 1200 400 1200 400
I ran: 4:48 94 4:55 94 4:58 89
Ran 6 this morning as a recovery!
