By Carolyn Mather
As we leave the dog days of summer, and begin preparing for a late fall/winter marathon or half marathon, it might be a good idea this fall to add a little speed to your training runs. After all, you want to be at your best at a race that takes so much preparation.

Whether it is the mile or the marathon, you will run faster if you get stronger. The stronger you are, the easier it is to work at a given sub-maximum level of stress loading. Marathoning is all about running sub-maximally for a very long period. The faster this sub-maximum pace is, the quicker is your finish.
