Marathon Training Update May 12

6 x 800. Meeting up with Stu Marcy tonite for intervals. So windy we decided to run a loop course on the trails inside Robin Hill Park. Turned into a pretty good workout. Supposedly this has been measured but I ran 2:54, 2:52. 2:51: 2:50. 2:50, 2:46. Plenty of curves and some up and down so these were far slower than I run on the paved straight only the times were 5 seconds faster. Sounds good anyway. With warm up and cool down 7 miles total.

Stu's daughter Stephanie ran 4:54 for 1,600 meters in high school and was the 2006 Washington State Champion in Cross Country. She currently runs for Stanford and recently turned in a 16:27 for 5K at the Payton Jordan Invitational.

In the park we also bumped into Allison Cutting, another Washington State 2A State Cross Country Champion.
