Always lessons to learn

I've been reading through my new book on road racing, by Alberto Salazar (who needs no introduction, but in case you don't know much about the legend, this article gives a good recap). It's a fantastic read the way it's written and gives great advice on running posture, pacing during speed work and stretches -- so much so that I applied a few of his pointers and could tell the difference.

Ran a 7 mile GA at 7:37 mile pace, and threw in 8x100. I ran the overall pace a little too fast, but a beautiful day and perfect weather will do that for you.

Tomorrow, I have an 8 miler with 3x1600. I plan to do it in the early morning so it's off to bed soon.
