Shalane Flanagan Workout - Episode #7
A few weeks ago Shalane Flanagan had her sights set on the 5k at the 2008 Olympic Trials.....that was before she became the American record holder in the 10k. With Eugene just over 3 weeks away, many people have thoughts about which event will be her strongest. Did you ever think about her doing both?
Either way, this workout done in Colorado Springs will show you that you need more than just intervals and miles to make it to the top.
