Happy Christopher Severy Day! Tim Catalano & Adam Goucher's blog www.runtheedge.com for October 12 had a touching tribute to the late University of Colorado cross-country runner, whose tragic death was a central theme in the latter half of Chris Lear's 1999 book, Running With The Buffaloes.

Effort-Based Training: - short periods of stress, followed by rest, is the key to increased fitness - workouts will leave you tired, but not so tired you could not do the same workout in two-to-three days
Tempo Runs: - teach the athete to run relaxed at efforts close to racing effort - teach the body to use lactate more efficiently
Long, Steady Distance: - develops the cardiovascular, mental & musculoskeletal systems - speeds are slower than racing or track training efforts
These elements are research-proven, race-proven, elemental & effective parts of F.A.S.T.'s training.
