This is Sunday, February 4, 2024.

Yesterday was the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, and there are so many lessons to learn from the finishers.

Today is the New Balance Indoor GP, and I am in Boston to cover that event as well!

Your workout:

Warmup well,

75-90 minutes of moderate running,

cooldown well,

get into dry clothes, change shoes,


Larry’s Deep Thoughts: Training by himself in Central California, CJ Albertson ran the fastest last mile of the Olympic Trials, barely missing the team. He was ten seconds off third place! CJ had built a heated room at his house (do not do this at home), and his attention to detail was tremendous. Leonard Korir, third place, was 4th in 2020. He had been telling himself for four years that he would get on the team. Connor Mantz and Clayton Young, training partners, battled Zach Panning until 23 miles and took off, going 1 and 2.
