Do you always run the same course? Do you ever vary your runs? In the “Race Different (and Even Weird) Distances” bonus chapter from Timeless Running Wisdom, author and longtime runner Richard Benyo advises varying the lengths and paths of your training runs or entering unique events to include odd distance events such as a 12K or even a 100-meter sprint.
By embracing the unusual course or mileage, you’ll decrease injuries, increase motivation, and improve your overall running performance. With this FREE bonus chapter, you are literally encouraged to run off into the sunset.
If you enjoy the FREE bonus chapter, check out the other 24 chapters that make up the complete work of Timeless Running Wisdom.
