2018 HOKA ONE ONE RunBlogRun Spring Training, 800m-5000m, week 6, day 7, time for your long run!

| 0 Comments

Long runs are part of our weekly training. Long runs were always the times that I worked on my painting ideas and my paper ideas for various and sundy history classes. Our Sunday runs in college were done in the Santa Cruz mountains. Our coach, Dan Durante, had this book of ghost towns in the Santa Cruz mountains and we ran through many. It was fun, and cool as we went down into the redwood forests. On the way back up, there was much grinding and nashing of teeth as we ran the last 30 minutes straight up the mountain roads we had gone down so easily one hour before. I found those long runs really helped me with racing 10,000m on track, and road racing, as well as marathons.
