Scott Harrison, CT based age group stud from Connecticut shares his most recent race at the Boston Marathon.
What has been your boston experience and how did you approach the race this time around?
"I have run Boston 15 times. This time I changed my training by not
only running up lots of hills, which I always did, but hammering down
those same hills. As a result, I did not suffer the usual crushing quad
pain the last few miles. I was able to walk down stairs not only on the
day after the race but the second day. "
How did it go?
"Clearly something worked this time. This was one of the better times
in many years. I ran first 13 miles comfortably, passed lots of people,
ran next 7 comfortably hard, passed more people, and hammered (as best I
could) last 6. I was 5 minutes faster than last year and felt better at
end. Doesn't get much better than that. I did wear HRM. Spent entire
race in TZ2 M / H. In my case, these are the two zones below AT. "
Thanks for the report,where will you be next?
"...See you at the Rockies. Btw, that is the most comfortable jersey I have ever worn."
