Earlier this week I decided to get super serious about marathon training and do mile repeats. The truth is, this is only like the third time I’ve actually done them for real. They should be a weekly exercise but gosh darnit, those things are hard.
I know that mile repeats and other speed work — like sprints (HATE!) and tempo runs (can deal if they are fairly short) — are essential to becoming a faster marathoner. I know it would be worth it to invest. Lindsey says:
Right now, I’m battling a back injury I got from flipping a heavy tire at Crossfit on Tuesday. This girl is NOT happy with that. I have a really hard time with the deadlift move and hurt my back every so often. This time it was more than normal and is very sore. It’s slowly getting better but I’ve taken the past two days off of working out to help it heal.
