I like to add the caveat, with a twinkle in my eye, “Don’t try this at home folks!” when describing particularly tough workouts. Two of my mates play nothing close to the vest.
Grant Wintheiser’s final tough workout leading into this weekend’s race. 2 mile warm up, 4 miles at 5:00 pace, directly into 10 miles at 5:30 pace, directly into another 4 miles at 5:00 pace. Too bad it was the same weekend as Boys Town. Would have loved to see him on the line with Seth, everybody else’s favorite.
Jay Welp, no shrinking violet, has thrown down a gauntlet that speaks volumes as to why he runs for me. He’s training up to take on the wunderkind at Road to Omaha. Whom in Nebraska over the last few years has had the balls to stake such a claim? Only Jay. Competition at its finest. His 8 x 700 w/:60 recovery shows he’s ready. 2:05, 2:03, 2:02, 1:59, 1:58, 1:58, 1:56, 1:48!
Try this at home folks. Go ahead.
