I’m sure we can all relate to this:
After disappointing performances in a couple of key tune-up races last fall, a depleted Ryan Hall made the hard decision to withdraw from the Chicago Marathon. Too many grinding 15-mile tempo runs at a five-minute-per-mile pace at 7,000 feet with too little rest afterward had finally caught up with him. “I love to push my body,” he says. “Recovery is the hardest part of training for me.”
Me too. At no-thousand feet. Today’s run in the sun might be a grinder. Heat index numbers will be up around 100 during the afternoon both today and tomorrow.
