Week 25, Day Three, December 2, 2015
If you are running NXN this weekend, you need to take it easy the next three days.
For NXN runners, I would suggest a 2-3 mile easy run, some stretching and go home.
For FL XC runners, I would suggest a warm up of one to two miles, then run a mile at 5k race pace, jog five minutes, run another mile at 5k race pace, jog five minutes and finish up with six strideouts of 150 meters, and then, cool down.

Of RunBlogRun, his daily pilgrimage with the sport, Larry says: "I have to admit, I love traveling to far away meets, writing about the sport I love, and the athletes I respect, for my readers at runblogrun.com, the most of anything I have ever done, except, maybe running itself."
