Dan - why the hell are you wearing shorts??? If you can minimise your risk of picking up an injury by simply keeping your legs warm why wouldn't you?
PRF - In previous park runs I have done in the snow there has been a significant drop-off in times. It may be a good idea to have the course checked on the morning of the race for ice as the conditions seem to be so volatile
8 easy, 6 steady and 8 easy for tues, wed, thurs from me. Another 6 steady for tomorrow may have to be effort rather than pace orientated and off-road. Not looking forward to a 12 miler in snow on Sunday, but I have vowed to myself that every run my coach asks for will be done with no excuses.
In times like this I like to think that Steve Jones and Ron Hill would be out training no matter what, and was wondering if there is a good source of info to learn more about them and how they trained other than what is in Lore of Running and Marathon Talk interviews. Does anyone have any recommendations?
