Alana Hadley...thanks for the inspiration!

Thunder Road half marathon was my last race of 2010. After that race, my plan was to just do some base building for the next 6 week training block which has gone rather well. Easy 10 mile daily runs with a 20 miler on either Saturday or Sunday. 80-85 mile weeks with no thought of a specific workout.

I enjoyed a swift 8 mile tempo run last week at Landsdowne with Billy and Paul as well as a nice 7 mile tempo run with Megan and Caitlin last Saturday at McAlpine.

So last night I was on Facebook seeing what everyone was doing and I saw that Alana had done a threshold run on the treadmill and it gave me inspiration!

This morning I got to work (school) and jumped on the treadmill for 1 hour and 12 minutes of six minute paced running. For me, this was a cross between steady state and marathon paced running. Thanks Alana! Inspiration can come from anywhere...

Question: Who just won his second consecutive high school Footlocker cross country title?
