This is going to be a short blog entry. This is my first publically-stated goal for the upcoming year. I’ve been snooping about the internets, reading Michael Sandrock’s Running with the Legends, George Sheehan’s This Running Life, looking over World Publication’s Guide to Distance Running (a classic), and the latest copy of Running Times. It all confirms what I have been telling myself for about the last year: more, but slower. I’ve been running my easy runs too quickly (since I was in high school…) and my speed work too slowly (because I’m beat from running everything too quickly). Therefore, one of my main running goals is to increase my mileage, but reduce the intensity of my easy runs (thereby reducing the chance of injury, hopefully). This will probably mean that I will have to start running early in the morning – need to find the time somewhere. Has anyone else out there had a “come to Jesus” moment about their mileage? Did it help? I would love to hear some success stories.
