Training Tip Thursday
"Secrets to building speed - Training faster, makes you faster, and probably the single best way to begin building speed for distance, is to always run with friends who are slightly faster than you are. Training with faster friends assures that you are running at the edge of your ability, and making every step count. When running at the track, place yourself in a lane to the right of your partners. This will require that you run slightly further than your friends, and you will be forced to run slight faster on the curves to keep up. Finally, enter all the 5k and 10k fun runs you can find. These short races are far more enjoyable than regular training, help you develop pacing skills, build speed, and most importantly, add to your growing T-shirt collection."
