August 5: Brenn, Gregg, and Joee
With Brenn, Gregg, and Joe. Gregg ran yesterday’s Club Champs, so we talked about them, before morphing into race strategy in Central Park races and more generally, with some heated discussion. And some talk about the Olympics men’s 10,000.
And here’s Martin Gladwell’s piece on Alberto Salazar, which non-subscribers may get.
I was correct in my recollection of last year’s club Championship. I wrote:
I did have a bit of a scare as I approached the finish. For the first time, I started getting shaky in the legs. The finish is shortly after a left-turn onto the 103rd Street Transverse and before I made the turn I questioned whether I would make it. As I said, it was tougher than I expected. I took water at 2. I was fine afterward and in the post-race jog. I don’t know what caused it.
