Feet Meet Street
Yep, Nitmos recently posted about "junk miles". Well, I've been slowly becoming a believer of this concept (NOT of Nitmos). Currently, I've been running 3 times a week. Here's how it breaks down:
Day 1 - 3.5 miles
Day 2 - 3 miles (much hillier course)
Day 3 - long run (5-6 miles)
My goal this year is to break, nay...shatter, 2 hours for a HM. I looked at FIRST training and I don't think I've built a base to that just yet, but would consider it later on. Here are some questions that linger:
- Do I need a base before debating the quality vs. quantity?
- If I just start doing speed work (in 2 weeks) without a base, could I get injured?
- If I could do some speedwork, what would it look like in the beginning?
- Did I really just use "believer" and "Nitmos" in the same paragraph?
this is the most backhanded compliment you're going to get from me, Nitmos. Bookmark this page and remember it fondly.
