“NEW SECRET WORKOUT FOM EUROPE”…it ended up being mile repeats.

You’d think a Eurpoean workout would be metric, like repeat Ks, not miles.

I know it’s easy to rip on RW, but I don’t get a subscription, so I won’t. I did recently ask my dad if he still had his old running logs, from the early 80s. His search didn’t turn up his logs, but he found a bunch of old RW articles and a couple of entire magazines. These are from ’80 and ’81 and have 1 page essays from Lydiard, Clayton, Sheehan, Henderson and Burfoot, etc. In one article I read this morning Clayton is talking about his build-up prior to his marathon WR. He mentions 160 mile weeks. I wonder when the last time anything like that was printed in RW?
