I'm a firm bealiver in training age. Plus most people will have an injury free, multiple pr season at the shorter distances that only encourages more training. If i train a person for the 5k, they can race damn near every month or 2. One bad race is quickly erased by a good pr. As for the marathon, i hate to see someone run a 4:20, then train for 5 months, and run a 4:23 and think they threw away there year, even though they do not take into consideration, course, weather, and experimination with training.
I'm chasing a pr in the marathon right now, and all i can think is “Man i can't wait to get back to the short stuff!”
