astonished at the first 5 - kept getting faster.

didn't feel like I was getting faster per split .. kinda odd.. don't recall this happening much. I mean I was just relaxing, felt slower than 8:XX that's for sure, but also didn't feel like I was getting faster. So just interesting and surprising when I saw the data.

Race time :ibrunning:

yezzz!!! would be nice to get first.. it's basically being held in 50% of my stomping grounds. 50% = coral springs, 50% = tamarac. Tamarac is next week :D Closest I got on that was 7th last year, 30+ the year before. Top 3 maybe? Only way it's a possibility is if i'm able to drop something solid tomorrow.. 8) :ninja:

:ibrunning:

Should be really good weather tomorrow for the race, ~65F (18.3C?) which might be the "coldest" race of recent. If so, and all goes well, should be able to run pretty fast. It's a fast course so, no problems there.

I need to start pushing myself a bit harder, kinda like I did last year. Some similar race results to last year, but the effort is way different. Last year i'd try and hang the first mile, then be completely dead, and try to push it to the finish. This year i'm hitting comfortably fast 1-2 miles, then coasting the rest. Just been avoiding that "deathly effort", which tbh i'm not a huge fan of in my current phase of training. But, some big races coming up, so need to turn it up a notch.

I'd love for my calves to loosen up by tomorrow though.. they've been tight all day and recently have gotten more sore, DOMS'ish.

lame.

Before very important races (which this one isn't), I need to learn how to tone it down more and come into the race completely fresh, not an ache/sore muscle in sight. Since these recent races have been less important, I haven't worried about that as much. Still, i've been giving myself more rest by preceding races by two rest/light days instead of 1.. so definitely improving in that respect. Before important races I might need to shut it down like 4 days prior.. Need to experiment more with that.

I'd like to figure out how to 1) supercompensate to the max AND 2) feel completely fresh (no aches/soreness/tightness at all) the previous day & race day. I've felt decent on most of my race days, but the day before always seems to make me worried about being too wrecked.

I'll try a 4 day rest before my 12/17/2017 5k .. which will be easy to do because I have a mile race on 12/12/2017.

Maybe i'll do something like:

12/13/2017: evening 1 mile race
12/14/2017: complete rest
12/15/2017: double very light
12/16/2017: complete rest
12/17/2017: 5k race
12/18/2017: DELOAD UNTIL 01/01/2018.

pc!!

My legs feel CRAZY GOOD right now, all of a sudden. Like an instant rush of freshness. So nuts that it deserves its' own post.

Stomach feels a bit meh, body feels great.. the usual. Also it'sl ike 62F right now, freezing for me, good running weather.

Also, I ate 3 x grapefruit instead of 1.. :ninja: I'm just such a grapefruit fiend.. and if my stomach is going to feel meh, i'm going to enjoy me some more grapefruit pre-race. It'll probably end up helping me. I usually do 1 grapefruit, which is probably some immediate energy for 1 mile, this time I did 3, maybe 3 miles? even if it's not true, it's great to lie to yourself.

Race planning!!

5k on Saturday. Last year got third overall. So weather should be decent I imagine: 69F & ~30% chance of rain apparently. 69F = good weather to go hard.

Day before:
- early morning very light run (~6 miles), fajitas early, early evening very light ~1 mile.

Last year's 5k:
- 2016 it was held in September
- 2017 held in November (rescheduled due to hurricane Irma)
- https://www.strava.com/activities/707020707

2016 splits:
- 6:03, 6:18, 6:37, 6:51 (0.1)

So needless to say, slow race overall. This year I don't expect anyone crazy to show up, because tomorrow is the Flanagan 10k which is a huge race, prize money + pros etc. You never know though..

This course is basically, 0.2 miles slow loop, 1.5 miles heading north, and 1.4 miles heading south. I think my strategy will be to go my hardest with the wind, so, whichever direction that's blowing, change my strategy to accommodate that a bit. Sounds funny but, it works out in my favor either way:
- moderate 0.2, hard initial 1.5, moderate finish 1.4
- moderate 0.2, moderate 1.5, hard finish 1.4
- i'd love to keep my moderate pace under 6:00 min/mi this race, so I need to look at my watch more, and i've never gotten three sub 5 splits, so that's a goal of mine eventually. Need to get closer to knocking that out.

If it's hard initial 1.5:
- going to try and maintain <= 5:25 for 1.5
- try and maintain 5:59 1.4

If it's hard finish 1.4:
- try and relax, maintaining 5:59 for 1.4
- going to try and maintain <= 5:40 for 1.5

If there's a side wind, who knows. lmfao. I'll still pick one of them.

If someone fast shows up, strategy is basically out the window.. I think it'll be similar to last year though, so that's why i'm coming up with two strategies, just in case it's me "dictating" the race.

Anyway, hoping it's the first option .. would rather try and gun it early, because it's better preparation for the next two 5k's on the 23rd and 25th, which are very fast.

peace!!

LMFAO. pretty much hit my goals exactly.

also, first GPS timed sub 18 5k @ 17:51 & 3 x sub 6 splits..  :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ibrunning:

edit: it's been so long since i've really PR'd, i forgot to use the  :personal-record: bbcode............ :D

 :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record:

about time I hit some PR's in 2017 :D

will post more in a bit.

 :personal-record: NATION!

Yo thanks so much man!!!

Yup about to post some details now.

What's crazy is how good I felt afterwards, and still feel.. my legs felt like rubberbands today, dunk-level bounciness. Also just lifting my foot onto a bench to tie my shoe, felt like my leg had no weight.

I'm definitely learning how to do what I did with dunking, but now with running. For peak performance, it's all about creating some fatigue and rebounding out of it.. I mean Wednesday night I could barely hit 5:30 min/mi pace, CNS was so toast. Today I hit 5:33 like it was nothing, for my first mile. My work capacity is way up because of these double sessions and all of the long light running, so i'm able to rebound hard after ~2 days rest. Might be able to rebound even more off of 3 days rest etc, need to experiment with it. I'll experiment more with that in 2018.

Ok going to post some details!

Coral Springs 5k: 2nd overall. Official 5k PR (18:05) :personal-record:, First sub-18 (17:51) :personal-record: watch estimated 5k, First 3 consecutive sub-6 mile splits {5:33.9,5:50.9,5:54.2}. :personal-record: PR CITY.

Awesome race. It was basically me leading for ~1.7, with two dudes right behind. I surged every time they tried to come even with me, to make sure I stayed in front. By 1.7 (turn around), the guy who got 1st overall took the lead, and I mostly stayed right behind or basically even, occasionally trying to test him with some surges. He outkicked me at the end. I mistimed my kick, should have done it a little later. As soon as I started to kick, he kicked and had lots of power around the turn. I should have waited until we got around the turn to just try and go full sprint, would have given me a better chance I think. Lesson learned.

This was basically my first hard 3.1 of the year, so i'm happy with it. Going to be hard to repeat this next race, because it's the "turkey trot" which has some insanely fast guys, and the goal is to keep up with them for 2 miles so, probably going to be a bit wrecked by 2 miles. But I needed to put in an effort like this today so that I could be more prepared to grind it out in these upcoming races, which are very fast.

Looking to PR my 2 miles/cooper's test in the next two races. I mean if I can hang on after that and keep it up, I will .. but the goal is always to push it hard from the onset & push my first two mile splits way down.



EDIT: Oh also! Motorcycle cops lead the entire way .. I love that. It really amps me up more for some reason. Just the sounds of the bikes & the intensity of them trying to make sure we're safe etc, spazzing out on motorists & pedestrians who have no clue what's going on or are trying to "violate" the rules etc.. When you're in the lead/lead pack, it's more intense because there's nothing in front of you, other than cops in this instance.. So they have to make sure no cars are trying to cut through, or people are trying to cross the street etc.. The only thing that sucks about it, is the fumes.. You can definitely smell more fumes.

I tried to "buzz the tower" (I call it) and almost caught one of the cops slipping.. Was right behind him almost about to get even with him before he noticed and floored it to get space. haha. I did that on one of my surges.



data:









strategy:

Based on my strategy from a few days ago, I went with the "go hard from the onset" version. Wind was coming in from the side, so no issue there. Figured i'd try to drop everyone from the onset, but two dudes held on for a while, then it played out like I mentioned above.



My head after the race:





Someone took this photo and came up to me/the winner, and texted us both a finish line photo.. that was awesome. Otherwise, I may not get one, because these events usually have "poor" photography/social media.





I have a few more of me in them, about to post to IG.



I tell you what.. i'm amazed when I don't see people congratulate each other when they get to the "medal ceremony" .. like in the age groups, overall, etc.. It happens alot. First thing I do is make sure to shake the other competitor's hands.. IDGAF about anything else until I did that. The dude who won was incredible nice & positive, we are now friends on FB. We talked a bit during the 2nd half of the race.. He also runs with a (crossfit) club, who had tons of people there, and they all were cheering for him as we came back down the second half. He responded to every single one of them by waving/saying thanks etc. I do that same thing.. Seems like a very good dude. Third place dude was a 14 year old, got to stay on our game, he's gong to be fast.. lool.



me getting dusted:





Anyway, happy.

Not pushing myself as hard as last year, is paying off.. I mean, I want to be more easily hitting these paces, not killing myself to do so.. I should be killing myself to hit consecutive sub 5's etc. So, by focusing more on relaxation/less guts, it's making me focus more on other things like, total mileage, lots of slow relaxed running, better speed sessions, etc.. Obviously i'm going to have to push it every mile at some point, like I did today, but the overall mindset is to get faster without killing myself. I want it to be easy......... So maybe that means putting in 100+ miles per week, 90% of which are light, etc.. Figuring that out, is a key part of the equation.

peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So i'm going to go to the Flanagan 10k after all, but not running. Going just to watch, take some photos, etc.

I randomly found some elite marathoner (~2:12 PB I think) who is going to be racing there, a 10k tune up before the US Marathon Championships.. It's not too far away, how could I not go and check this out?





This dude trains with CHELIMO..............

Man i'm going to get there early af and absorb some shit.

Got some really cool shots & witnessed a world record .. Kevin Castille got a 10km road world record in the 45-49 age group, hit 29:51 (4:49 pace). Guy who won it hit 29:21 (4:44 pace)

He almost didn't make it.. He was completely destroyed. Legs were collapsing. Here he is afterwards:



I'll link some more photos/videos in a bit.
