Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #032
-- Another Contest...
November 23, 2011
Yes, another contest. You'll need to be
pretty quick for this one...
The Best Running Tips Facebook page is about to get its 5,000th fan.
All you have to do is guess which day this happens (based on PST in case of close calls) and you can win a copy of Daniels' Running Formula.
Daniels' Running Formula is one of my favorite running training books, one that I often refer people to. It's worth participating.
But you have to be quick. Your guess needs to be in by Friday 25
November 11.59pm PST. After that the countdown begins.
1) Go to http://www.facebook.com/best-running-tips
2) Find the contest announcement and add your guess there.
3) If more than one person guesses the right date, the earliest entry
What Have I
Been Up To?
Well, not a lot has changed since last time. I
am still building my base, preparing for a June marathon. So working on doing easy runs, long runs,
steady state runs and tempo runs only.
So you see, that's basically four different types of workouts in the "boring" base building period. Running slow doesn't have to be boring, you just need to know how to do it!
For some variety I have entered a 28k trail run that's on in
mid-January. That's in Australian summer. Nothing like a 40+ C / 100+ F day to run on a hilly trail!
Unfortunately the race is over-subscribed, but I have good hopes that enough people will pull out, so I can join in the fun.
If you celebrate it, happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your time with family and/or friends.
But, before Thanksgiving, don't forget your contest entry. Do it now:

to you soon.
In the meantime, come visit my site often and happy running!
