I was supposed to run 5 miles yesterday but was so dog tired that I couldn't do it. I didn't get up this morning to do it either because I still felt like I needed to sleep. This is the miserable kind of tired I am talking about.
So the question arises, do athletes need to take vitamins? The answer, if you follow the scientific literature, is absolutely! In fact, athletes need more vitamins and minerals than the average person.
Should you be right behind the person? A few yards back? Off to the side a little? I tried it yesterday right behind a person (about 2 feet back) and felt like was working against the persons kick turbulence. Is there another way?
I am currently training for 2 Sprint Tri's this summer, and was just wondering what is a good average for my weekly running mileage?? I have a very strong swimming background and the bike I don't have to worry about either..it all comes down to the run.
OK, 6 miles for me today in 72 degree heat and 84% humidity. Not bad at a 8:36 pace. Still need to get faster though. The forecast is looking pretty good though after this weekend with overnight lows back in the 60s in the DC area.
