Holiday 4-miler

So 27:36 - 6:54 pace - in the NYRR Holiday Four Mile run this morning. Much better than last week's debacle, but having run nearly a minute faster in another four-mile race last month, I was somewhat disappointed. My time was also four seconds slower than I did in the July 24, 2004 Central Park Health/Fitness 4-miler. Gotta step up the mileage.

Overall, I was 204 out of 1,603 men; 79 out of 589 men aged 30-39; and 226 of 3,105 overall.

Running question -

I've stepped up the mileage (for me) on my Sunday long runs. My pace however has plummeted while the general tired feeling in my legs has increased. These last three Sunday long runs have been 70 mins, 75 mins, and 80 mins, for the same distance. On today's slow 80 minute effort, my legs never felt good the whole way. Just a general ache feeling.

I'm only running 4 times a week - one sprints with rest, two 3-4 milers, and then the long run.

Over shorter distances I've seen a dramatic improvement in my times, but the long runs are discouraging.

Ever had this happen? Any thoughts?

sounds like maybe a mechanical issue? how's your running shoes, do they need replacing? that would be my guess...

I'm glad you're getting out to run fairly regularly, btw! Where do you go (if you can say)?

Inside my compound there is a building that if I run around it 3 times its a kilometer....So it likes running on a slightly smaller track. :<

Of course its nice to have somewhere to duck when the natives get restless...

I think you're right about the shoes, I've had these forever... So off to the PX I go...
