The Bet

Just pulled out 4 running logs from the archives. I turned to March in each one to get an idea of what I was doing running-wise during this month in years past. Here’s a quick glance…

March  25-27, 1996 [I’m 18 years old]: 6 x 800 track workout @ about 2:30 average & 7.5 miles total for day

2 days of about 7 miles each day

March 04-09, 2004 [I’m 26 years old]: 4 miles, day off, 3.7 miles, 4 miles, 3 miles, “Official Day Off” [How could I have even needed a day off?!]

March 24-29, 2011 [I’m 33 years old]: 5 miles at 6:30 tempo pace on gravel

5 miles with a gym workout

14 miles [7:40 pace]

8 miles

5 x 1000m track workout [5:40-5:45 pace]

March 15-26, 2016 [I’m 37 years old]: 13 miles of running; then a gym workout

12 x 400m track workout (solo) @ 5:14 average pace

16 mile run

12 x 400m track workout (solo) @ 5:16 average pace

18.6 mile race @ 6:22 average pace; 6:14 pace for

final 1.5 miles

 

In terms of strength building and marathoning potential, I’m putting my money on my 37 year old self!
