MASTER THE MILE

A COMBINATION OF SPEED AND ENDURANCE, THE MILE RACE IS A CLASSIC CHALLENGE. MASTER IT, SAYS MARTIN YELLING, AND YOU’LL BE A BETTER RUNNER OVER ANY DISTANCE

About Men's Running

Haruki Murakami, author of ‘What I talk about when I talk about running’ has an apposite quote for describing our sport: “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” I’ve thought a lot about this quote over the years - and it’s taken me just as long to understand what he’s trying to say. My personal take on it is that we all know that running hurts, it’s just how we channel that pain and deal with it mentally that makes the difference. Over the years, Men’s Running has delivered hundreds of articles about how to train to make the pain as painless as possible. We’ve talked to experts about how to train intelligently for every distance and brought you training plans to nail PBs from 5K to a marathon. We’ve rounded up the best of these and brought them to you in one guide so that you can simply run faster. And, remember, suffering is optional!
