Acceptable in the Eighties

Time to do some reading while the legs recover. Love the ethos espoused in this English runner’s blog, Acceptable in the Eighties. Looks like it will be well worth following.

The most important aspects of a distance runner’s training are patience and consistency. These things are not glamorous. They don’t fit in particularly well in today’s society. There are no quick fixes and no immediate gratification. But there is satisfaction in something done to the best of your ability and with conviction. There is solace in repeating a simple activity until it becomes smooth, efficient and, of course, faster.
