10 mile easy run

I didn't get up as early as planned so only had time for 10 today. My legs were tired from yesterday so the pace was slow. I was dragging myself up to the aqueduct, then east for 3, and turn around back home. Total mileage was 10, pace was just over 8:30 pace avg.

On the weekend I prefer to get the hard workout in on Saturday and go long on Sunday. Since the long run is typically at an easy pace anyway I might as well already be a little tired. And it usually means I will have a better workout on Saturday. It is tough for me to run fast the day after a "long run," usually meaning over 12 miles.

The big story today was that Lukas Verzbicas broke his own National HS indoor 5k record running 14:06 all by himself, well he was lapping everyone which gave him someone to chase. What makes this even more impressive is that he did it after winning the two mile in 8:40 (second fastest all time) and the mile in 4:10, and he did it all this weekend at the New Balance Indoor HS Nationals! Check out the 5k video here. He is SO SMOOTH! One more minute and he will be world class.

Oh, and if you didn't see NCAA indoor championships, Jordan Hasay was a double champion in the mile and 3k. The mile was good but this 3k finish was AWESOME. Check it out here.
