Why experimentation is critical for older athletes

the faster you can run 800's and 1500's, the easier it is to run 3 consecutive 7:08's

Why is experimentation critical for older athletes? Because it stimulates our mind, which fuels our body’s sense of adventure. So this morning I went on a mini-adventure. Ran four miles, with the adventure coming in the second mile. The goal was to run the fastest 800 (but not hurt myself) in years. It was exciting to run 2:44

Knowing I ‘m traveling today to Michigan for three days to speak, I’ll use these travel days as a rest from running. The 5k is in four days. Ya with me?
