The Logic of Long Distance
There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.
Back beat, the word was on the street That the fire in your heart is out I'm sure you've heard it all before But you never really had a doubt
The Diary of a Once-ran.
What's happened with running in the west today is that we "know" so much that no one experiements anymore. Everyone is afraid that if they stray outside the accepted boundaries of intelligent training they'll fall apart. While I'm not saying everyone should run a mile PR in a workout and then hang on for another nine miles, I am saying that it's generally people who don't accept conventional limitations who make the big breakthroughs. So much of what we read about successful preparation for the sport is about physiology that we're losing sight of the emotional and mental aspects which I think really are much more important to an individual's success or failure.
Here it is...awesome!
Sack up and run.
