This is Sunday, April 9, 2023.This is day 7, Week 4 of RunBlogRun’s Spring Training for the Middle Distances, 800 meters to 5,000 meters.
Today’s workout is the long run.
While at Santa Clara University, I would put a half dozen Broncos in my 1968 VW bus and drive,
slowly, up to Summit Road and the home of Dan and Cheri Durante. Dan was our head coach and a man
possessed, as Kenny Moore noted of the late Ron Hill, “by the scientific method.”
Dan found a myriad of old roads through the Santa Cruz mountains for our Sunday runs. On several of those
runs, we would be greeted by Steve Wozniak, who was one a neighbor of our coach.
The runs were 15, 18, 20, and 23 miles. Most went into the cool Redwoods, on a slight downhill for the first ten miles,
and then, we turn back to return back up the hills.
Your workout today is a good warm-up, 75-90 minutes moderate pace, and cool-down.
