Weekly RunDown #126

"My goal is to stay fit enough and fast enough to 
be able to make a high school cross country team,"
 Herb Lindsay

The quote above came from this article when Lindsay was 56 - I have the same goal at 60 - sort of makes for a full circle thing.  Always remember watching Herb run back in the day - he never made it easy for anyone.

Another good article on Herb Lindsay from 1980: Herb Lindsay Comes on Strong

This week's Interview Tuesday was with Lisa Florey whose husband, Greg, I interviewed last week.'s This Week in Running: Feb 11, 2019's The Week That Was in Running: Feb 4-10, 2019

Dathan Ritzenhein ran a 61:28 in the New Orleans Rock 'n' Roll Half marathon

Killian looking at how many meters of elevation he could ski in 24hrs

Jeff Browning (47) wins Tarawera overall, even with a few extra miles due to an early mistake, and Camille Herron wins the women's race and gets 2nd overall after taking it out hard.  Seems the late advantage went to Jeff in the technical stuff - both broke last years record as 2018 was the first year for the 100 miler.

Speaking of Jeff hard to argue with his training being as good as he is when many are slowing down.  Here is Bronco Billy's Tough 21 Strength Routine - I know I am going to try and work this in.

Ryan Sandes writes about his run at Tarawera after DNF's at UTMB and Ultra Trail Cape Town

Will be interesting to see who shows up for this in September: Centurion Track 100

Trail Runner Nation talks to Mark Cucuzzella about his book "Run for Your LIfe"

Cool that you hear more of this coming out - as it speaks to those that say they run fast on lots of carbs and hard to deny that many are fast but at what cost and could they be just as fast if they took the time converted to a different fuel source. The issue is the time for conversion to LCHF for many athletes as they do not see themselves being able to take that time having to put out performances now.

Can't get much closer to breaking a record as Yomif Kejelcha, who was not afraid to tell everyone he was after the Indoor World Mile record, missed breaking the record at the Millrose Games by 0.02 seconds.  Funny because so many articles said he was 0.01 seconds from breaking it but that would just tie it.

A nice article on Magdalena Boulet who appears to be looking to qualify for the OT Marathon
