Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

August Training

I am going to start with a disclaimer.  I like to log a lot of miles each week.  The more mileage, the better -- for me.  I like to go long on both Saturday and Sunday during the summer.  The trails in Tahoe are amazing, and I want to run as many miles on them as I can!  Plus, the summers are short, so you need to cram in whatever you can when you can.  I have been told by many intelligent people that rest is good; I just nod politely.  I usually just take one day off a week, if that.  There is no such thing as "junk" miles in my book.  Every run has some value to me.  My training schedule is a combination of plans from various "experts" and what works for me.  The calendar is just an overview of what I hope to accomplish this month -- give or take a mile or two.
