I highly recommend, that if you are a runner in any way concern with running faster, at any distance, you follow through and click the link at the bottom of this post. I couldn’t figure out how to just re-blog the content, and I don’t want to just copy and paste without permission.
I apologize, but you’ll have to expend one-millionth of a calorie and click on the link.
Coach Jay Johnson has a wonderful blog, he interviews a lot of coaches and I learn A TON from what they all have to say. He also is friend’s with one of my running buddies and she kindly let me steal several of the workouts he gave her during Boston training…and they rocked my world.
Anyway, I like this article because I am a HUGE advocate for behind honest about you goals and efforts, and about basing your plan on reality, and on where you are RIGHT NOW, not on what outcome you want (that is to say, where you WANT TO BE). You can read some of my thoughts on this here. (Oh No! Not more link clicking!!!)
Here is the much advertised link:
Have a reality based day!
