IF YOU PLAN TO “GET FASTER” THIS SUMMER
Last week we looked at Mario Fraioli's track-based workouts. The article “Speed Workouts You Can Do Anywhere” by Amanda Loudin for Competitor offers up 4 different types of speed sessions that don’t require a track because they are measured by time not distance. The specifics of the workouts are spelled out in clear fashion and easy to put into practice. If you intend to try one or all, print the article, cut it into segments (each workout), staple each segment to an index card, place all in a quart size plastic bag that you can keep in your car or gym bag. That’s what I plan to do. Old school, but if I like one I'll use it all season and it will be ready to go when I am, rain or shine. Not much more to say about them!

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
