2019 HOKA ONE ONE Spring Track & Field Training Week 5, Day 7: A long run for Sunday!


The long run is a tradition on Sundays. We will build you up to 90 minutes for Sundays. In college, you can build to 2 hours, if you so desire. I wrote most of my history themes on long runs on Sundays. On my moderate runs on Wednesdays (90 minutes in college), I would consider my paintings for the week (history and fine arts, what they called a professional student in the 1970s).

Enjoy the long run. We ran in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California for my Sunday runs. I recall Steve Wozniak, yep, that one, riding his Vespa alongside us, on the quiet Santa Cruz roads as we ran through ghost towns from the 1890s. But that, is another column.
