PM - lunchtime run - easy - sunny, cool and dry - as you would expect (finally) this time of the year. I found a new route - which is scenic, though with a good amount of hills - with one lengthy one near the end on Peachtree Dunwoody road which is about 1.2 miles in length with an average grade of 3% but it kicks up to 14% in a couple parts. (Data by Strava). I am enjoying Matt Fitzgerald's training log for his build up to Chicago. He spent 12 weeks with the pros in Flagstaff. What is interesting is that he is adamant that he's not an elite runner - but better than average - which is why his little experiment resonates with me. He ended up running 2:39 which was a 2 min PR and about 10 mins faster than his fastest most recent marathon. Not a bad result at age 46.
