5:45 am workout with the varsity teams: We ran an easy 3 miles with a fast finish. Then some striders, drills, and core exercises. Finished with an easy 800.
I averaged 8 minute pace which is pretty good since I've been experimenting with a new trend I've been reading about in the best selling book "Chi Posin With the Tarahumara". I'm running in swim flippers while wearing the Vibram Five Fingers on my hands. Before primitive man learned to walk upright he would occasionally run on all fours while chasing wildabeasts to exhaustion. Hence the Five Fingers - I'm not quite ready to go bare handed.
In casual conversation with other runners I'm also sure to shake my head in dismay at the poor saps who are still running in running shoes.
