Building up base strength in the winter months is critical for a good season in 2012. Creating positive training habits is a powerful way to get it done. Take the next two weeks to find a fresh long run that will give you the strength to finish your races this summer with some punch.
Dirt trails with hills are perfect spots to log the miles on your body with less impact than roads. They are also a great way to keep the mojo fresh and use the time to free your mind.
Find the route. Find a friend to run it with you. Find two months worth of running dates in both your calendars to do it.
