2020 RunBlogRun Spring Track & Field Training program, in the time of the coronavirus, Week 39, day 1

| 0 Comments

The week begins. Monday is funday. Keep the idea of the easy day strictly. Well, only do it if you want to improve. The body is not mysterious. It gives you absolute lines in the sand. Push too hard and you will get hurt. Use your brain for a place holder, and you will end your career. More is not always better.

Easy day means easy day, even if you are the next Steve Prefontaine.
