Hurricane Irene might bring the hammer down on Brooklyn this weekend, or maybe it’ll just be a small annoyance. Its too early to tell. Either way, I’ll probably be running in the rain this weekend. In honor of long runs in the rain, here’s a video of Markos Geneti winning the 2011 Los Angeles Marathon in the rain.
This is a big weekend for me. For the first time in well over six months, I am planning on doing a fifteen mile run tomorrow. I’m more than a little nervous about it. Under fifteen – no big deal; Fifteen and over – hurts. So, to get myself excited, I am re instituting Friday Inspiration videos. Here is Josh Cox murdering an 8 mile tempo run.
The return of friday videos to get you excited for weekend long runs. Here is one of Anton Krupicka who long runs are looooong. Like a hundred miles long. Krupicka is definitely a dirty hippie, also a really interesting character. Check him out customizing his shoes to make them more light weight and unobtrusive at the begining of the video.
My long run isn’t going to be Krupicka long, I’m just hoping to go fourteen miles.
I am now neck deep in bar review, and unfortunately don’t have as much time to update here as I’d like. Still I didn’t want to miss friday inspiration! I have ten miles planned for tomorrow, which is a nice dialing back from last week’s 12 miler, and while I am doing it, I’ll be thinking about how fast Haile Gebrselassie is
So a lot of people are starting to get ready for a fall marathon, and here is Ryan Hall giving some solid advice about getting the miles in, but not freaking out. You know, if you’re running 5:17 splits, don’t worry about it, just relax…
