As if I didn’t feel enough of a slacker or slowpoke, along comes this article from the New York Times featuring Sara Hall. Check out this little snippet regarding her and her husband Olympic hopeful Ryan Hall’s training regimen:
“I’m not running as far these days,” Hall said, compared with the distances she ran in high school and college. That might come as a surprise to anyone who learns that her average weekly mileage remains 85 to 90 (compared with her husband’s 140-plus). A typical training week includes easy running on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (usually twice a day). Hall, who can run almost a four-minute mile, lopes through these 30- or 50-minute workouts at a leisurely mile pace of 7 minutes.
I just don’t know why this article is in the Style and Fashion section, though.
