re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - McVick

Only bad part was that my first couple of miles were slower than usual, so I took it as a sign and did a slow 12 miles. Now it's time to shower and fire up the gr...

re: FBD - GameDay Hurricane Cleanup Edition - McVick

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - McVick
Thank you Burt and PJM for the insight. I've only recently started track workouts and I've noticed improvements in my running both with my mile times and in my conditioning. I like it. I'm still find myself gravitating towards long runs but there's a little voice in the back of my mind pushing me to...
