Today is my birthday. To celebrate, I'm going to bed early.

I turned the Big Four One today.

If I want to live to see Four One and a day, I'd better be in bed by, say, 9.

That's because Saturday morning, we have THE RUN FROM HELL....

A 27-mile long run.

Here is how it's broken up....

1.5 mile warm-up
1 mile fast around the Anderson High School track
2 mile recovery
5 miles at marathon goal pace (Important that I stay at 7:40 min/mile here) w 3 to 5 minute recovery
4 miles at marathon goal pace
5 miles of hills
Then......DRUMROLL....
10k progression run around the track with the first two miles at marathon goal pace (7:40), then two miles at half-marathon goal pace, then two miles at 10k pace.
Then a 1.5 mile run back to our cars.

Eeeessssh!

Happy Birthday - I just had my 41st two weeks ago. Good luck on that workout tomorrow. (I do think that a training run longer than a marathon is exactly what you need mentally.)

10K pace after 24 miles? I'm not a running coach, but it seems like anyone who could do that is sandbagging their 10K pace!

It's my birthday too! Love reading your blog, especially I see black people. I am new too running and shocked by how few people of colour are out there running recreationally.

Happy Birthday to you!

Hope you celebrate tomorrow (both your birthday and the run) with a well-deserved bottle of wine!

Happy early birthday Kev. Man, that's a hell of a way to ring it in though.

happy birthday!

i can't even imagine that kind of run.

i must say, i'm taking notes on these runs though, if i ever go through a ridiculously masochistic period.
