I got out for 7 miles this afternoon and continued my hill training emphasis. I went up M-8 to 70th then down to L-8, up 65th for a mile of climbing and then up 60th for another half mile. Total mileage was 7.3 miles in 55:15 (avg 7:35 pace). Got into a groove for the last few miles and felt really good about it.
Last Friday Bernard Lagat won his record 8th Wanamaker Mile (indoor track) at the Millrose Games in NY. Here is the video of the race. It is truly beauty in motion. He is racing the Olympic champion and they both make 15 mph look effortless, then Lagat shows everyone that he has a whole other gear!
