Going for the Great!

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” -Prefontaine

Going for the great

Great quote runners!  So many meanings top two ways I can interpret his words:

1.  When you’ve been invited to go to Happy Hour but haven’t hit your run for the day, forget  how good that post work buzz will feel and go for that GREAT runners high!

2.  Don’t run your speed workouts on days where they will only be good.  Make sure you make every speed workout GREAT.  Otherwise it is a waste.  The challenge, keeping your body healthy so that each speed workout can be GREAT!

Go for the Great Runners!  Race day is approaching! 🙂
