  • Reply to: What you can do to run faster   4 weeks 10 hours ago

    I used to pick some one near me and just try and keep up with them no matter what. Now I try more often to run my own race and just concentrate on form and training (running everyday). I am a firm believer that you can only do in a race what you do in training. I used to think that a lot of long runs might help in 5ks but now I think only running hard 5ks in training is the only way to get fast 5k times.

    I too remember trying to be fast but now just love to go out and run 5 or 6 miles a day at a comfortable speed. Running is the best part of life.
