Planned trail run in the gully this afternoon...
Had to bag the gully this afternoon due to the all-day snow event.
6.25 miles super easy around Sugarhouse. 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups.
The #1 mistake most runners on this blog make is neglecting their speed. There is also a tendency to label workouts "speed workouts" that are not speed workouts. Mile repeats are not speed workouts. VO2 max, while critical, is not speed so don't call it that. A good rule of thumb is that true speed is not improved with efforts over one minute in duration. All runners should remember to include a steady diet of fast striders and short hill sprints into their training at every phase of the training cycle. When working on your speed it is critical to recover fully between each effort.
