One week after grabbing 2nd overall in the Double Oak Duathlon, Chad rips off a HUGE 5k PB. He cracked 18:00 for the first time by running a 17:53 this morning at the Rumpshaker 5k. (no I can’t just make up names like Rumpshaker 5k, that’s totally awesome)
What this really says is that if you build your running up to a sustainable level, in his case just over 40 miles per week on average since January, faster running times will follow. It also says that his competitors should be looking over their shoulder if they are ahead of him starting the run.
