Easy 6 mile jog for recovery at 7:30-8/min/mile pace. 7th east out and back. Day off tomorrow hopefully.. Enjoyed some Stevie Ray Vaughn on my MP3 player while I enjoyed the view coming back home. Nirvana.. Happy 4th of July everyone!
I have come to some conclusions about different training methods amongst various groups of runners. It's mainly genetic... However, there are some ways although limited that you can excel and realize your full potential and I mean yours and not someone elses. The Japanese method is a very good method but it is not for the working man who has a very physical labor oriented job. The time needed for recovery and refueling is rather impractical to say the least. This being known, we turn to the past successes of blue colllar runners who in spite of their circumstances excelled at a very high level. We take a page in history and turn our eyes toward the 1985 London Marathon for our next study..
