I know you have to be physically fit and this race seems like a killer!!! Good luck to you and I can tell you that I probably won't be running with you!

For the crazy endurance runners – run 2 miles post workout…

As you can see, there is NO endurance type stuff involved with this workout other than the pace of the workout. It should be fast and aggressive. You’ve got to ATTACK!

Even endurance type runners and athletes in general need to be training like this. When you build up more strength, power, and athleticism, you’ll build up more endurance as well.
