These tips are from Ryan Hall, the winner of the US Olympic Marathon Trials held last Nov. I got these from the August 2007 issue of Runner’s World.
1. Don’t be afraid of mistakes – it is better to make mistakes during training so they can be corrected before race day. Training = practice.
2. Simulate race conditions – if you want to run fast on road races, train by running fast on roads, not the track.
3. Know the purpose of each workout – make your hard runs hard, and the recovery runs easy.
Good luck to everyone running at the TNF100 (which started today and ends tomorrow), and the Robinson’s Buddy Run tomorrow 😀
