10-mile race coming up April 2nd (Read 782 times)


    I've been running for almost two years now. I've run several races, from a 1-mile race to the Marine Corps Marathon, and most distances in between. My next goal is to get fast, or at least faster. For the 10-mile race coming up, any suggestions for a good training regimen?

      I'm no speedster, but I think the key will be to put some variety in your routine, particularly speed play and repeats.
