2018-02-21 - Do your running homework

randy freepThere are only a couple more weeks of off season running then... No more mister nice guy! In January we make our spring race plans, in February, we ramp up the mileage and jiggle off the winter pounds. Your homework is to write a training schedule; it will be your coach. The schedule will always be there telling you when you miss a day! Find a schedule that you believe in and use it as a base. Tweak it to your real life schedule and mileage and it will be a key part of your get out the door arsenal.

Did you do your homework? Did you run today?
