over the top of the mountain

This is the last major weekend of training before Timberman and my goal was to do one thing: obliterate my body.

I did just that. After my 2 mile OWS yesterday followed by the hilly 46.7 miler, a running buddy and I drove down to the City this morning and ran 2 loops around Central Park. Take that Soupy Humid Weather! Its 2-1 in my favor now!

We did the 12.1 miles in 1:52 flat for a 9:15 pace.

It was a good run though. Definately one of the hardest of the season for me. I had to stop twice and get my bearings. The humidity really took a toll one me but I am proud to have done a strong run despite feeling like dog crap the entire time.

Since last monday, I have ran 27.4 miles. Thats the most amount of volume for me ever in a week.

And so starting tomorrow, the taper begins!


  1. you are going to kick some major ass at Timberman ! // the ride was from Easton to Tilghman Island on Maryland's Eastern Shore :)

  2. Sounds like a great final training weekend! Good luck at Timberman.
