What a good surprise to see the two words associated in one article title in Runner's World, a prominent magazine in the running community! Well, maybe not the ultra community, "just" the "up to the marathon" running community. Which is not too bad, several tens of thousands of people. And a community I still belong to, splitting my 2007 season between 7 road and 10 ultra trail races. Yes, I've one foot in each community, I subscribe and avidly read every issue of these publications, on both sides of the 26.2-mile "fence":
- Runner's World
- UltraRunning Magazine
- California Track & Running News
- UltraFondus (in French)
Here is the introduction to the article as published by Active.com, the text which caught my attention:
"As runners, we all want to increase our endurance, but we're often referring to two different things: speed and distance. Here are seven simple plans for running farther and faster."And the full story: BOOST YOUR ENDURANCE - Seven simple plans for running farther and faster, by Amby Burfoot. A piece of a series of Training Essentials must-read articles.
Farther and Faster, that's what I am talking about! ;-)
PS#1: just received my December issue of Runner's World this afternoon, see you later...
PS#2: this image comes from my last adventure in Costa Rica where I got my wallet stolen, so could not leave the country for several weeks. Just a private joke at my company for making the cover page of Runner's World!
