Advice for masters runners

The other day someone pointed me to the following post from Coach C on<br><br>
To me this advice rang true, even though I am not a speedster of the sort the coach is talking about.<br><br>
I couldn't find an article with the right title, but I think this is the article the coach was referring to:<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
What other advice would you give to masters runners?<br><br>
Speaking of advice, how is the <i>Women Masters Training Manual</i> coming along? I think it is such a cool idea, and you ladies are a perfect group to get it going.

Thanks, millbot! This post is very timely. I'm too stoopid and lazy to analyze the process. I just go out and try to run what I think I can sustain that day for the planned mileage. I began running marathons 2 years ago and after my 4th attempt, I managed to BQ, but it was a struggle. That was in Oct, and since then I had to cut back due to some medical issues. So now I'm on the road to Hopkinton with a serious hit in confidence. Your post though is very helpful. Maybe I shouldn't be trying to max my pace, and instead just build up stamina. Rather than focus on total mile/wk I'm going to try working in some interval/hill/speed work at least once a week, and REALLY try to slow down on the long run. Isn't that the coach's message?<br><br>
BTW, this is CR's mikemustrun. I'm much calmer now since I joined CR near the end of my enforced recovery, hence the name change <img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">
