Runners run. Running happens on Sunday through Friday at practice. Running happens during the summer. Running is what helps us prepare to race. Running is a technical skill. Running more miles doesn’t automatically result in running faster. If you run improperly, you merely train yourself to run improperly. More bad form isn’t better. Running better miles with better technique and working on the better mental aspect while running will result in faster times. Running isn’t the goal of races. Racing is the goal of racing. We run during the week so we can race on the weekend.
